About this course
The course covers topics from the historical development of the police force through to the investigative methods used to solve crime. The programme will be delivered through lectures, seminars, workshops, independent research, case-study analysis and input from guest speakers. A significant proportion of teaching will be practical and the emphasis will be on applying academic theory to real-life scenarios. Voluntary opportunities are available within the Greater Manchester Police (or an equivalent, related body) depending upon the successful completion of their vetting process.
