Police Leadership, Strategy and Organisation

The course aims to go beyond traditional public sector skills and generic leadership programmes. It provides an in-depth knowledge of the critical issues surrounding police accountability and independence, policing effectiveness and performance, and organisational transformation. It will stretch and inspire participants to take their leadership skills to the highest professional standards. It offers a combination of the latest business and management thinking, criminology and social sciences, all applied to the complex challenges of contemporary policing. It has been launched at a time of calls for greater public accountability, the growing importance of community partnerships and, in some quarters, a crisis of confidence in the integrity of police services.
