New Lincoln College Professional Policing Degree launched

August 05 2020

A new Professional Policing Degree, which is a route into police officer roles in the UK, was launched at a Policing College live virtual open day.

The degree programme, which is validated by the University of Derby, will see students cover a wide range of theoretical and legislative subjects - gaining the knowledge they need for a rewarding career in the police service.

Students will also get the chance to serve as Lincolnshire Police Special Constables while they study.

Lincoln College Associate Director of Higher Education Becki Hamnett said: “This is a must for students interested in careers with the Police and it is the first step towards becoming a police constable with Lincolnshire Police.

“You’ll prepare for the fast-moving world of policing by following a curriculum written and licensed by the College of Policing, studying a wide range of theoretical and legislative subjects including investigation, intelligence, serious and organised crime, murder and extremism.”

The Degree is being offered as part of Lincoln College’s new Policing College, which is supported by Lincolnshire Police and G4S.

The Policing College also delivers level two and three technical qualifications to prepare students for police support job roles including; Emergency Call Handlers, Custody and Detention Officers, IT Officers and Business Admin staff.

Lincoln College Head of Service Sector Stuart Reddington said: “The technical courses are a great way to prepare for police support roles, or progression to the Professional Policing Degree. 

“These courses have been co-designed by Lincolnshire Police and G4S and students will get to take part in some amazing enrichment activities with serving officers and support staff, including real public order and counter terrorism exercises.

“Our graduates will be very well placed to progress onto apprenticeships and full-time roles with the Police and G4S”

The Policing College held its first live Zoom open day last week with guest speaker Assistant Chief Officer Andrew White.

ACO White said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Lincoln College in the provision of new courses in the Policing College.  In particular, the provision of a Policing Degree course is an exciting development that will provide local students with a chance to train to be a police officer and then be considered for appointment upon graduation.

“Lincoln College and Lincolnshire Police are both embedded in our local communities and I look forward to seeing students studying over the coming year.”
