Police forces are powerful institutions that routinely engage with diverse communities and social groups. It is this very public aspect of policing that provides the ongoing context for study and makes for heated and lively debate. The course moves beyond taken for granted definitions and ideas, and critically evaluates claims to knowledge.
You are strongly encouraged to become a Special Constable for the duration of your studies on the Policing Studies degree programme.
We will assist you in making an application to a Special Constabulary and in particular we have a close relationship with Merseyside Police. However, there is nothing to stop you applying to become a Special Constable prior to commencing your studies. More information will be sent out to you regarding this process once you have been offered and accepted your place at LJMU.
