Police training and simulation

Policing students also have access to a new Training and Simulation Facility, affectionately known as the ‘Crime House’. The Crime House can be used by students to work through policing and law exercises in a realistic domestic setting.

Watch Rachel’s video about how the Crime House has helped put theory into practice on their Professional Policing degree.
