Overview

Police leaders today have to operate in a transparent, ethical and highly accountable arena - where their decisions are often scrutinised by politicians, the media and the general public. The new MSc in Police Leadership, Strategy and Organisation from  University of Derby aims to fill a gap in provision for individuals with high potential and the capacity to shape the future of the profession.

This exciting Police Leadership, Strategy and Organisation course from University of Derby offers a unique 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.

This MSc goes well beyond traditional public sector skills and generic leadership programmes. It gives you an in-depth knowledge of the critical issues surrounding police accountability, independence, policing effectiveness, performance and organisational transformation. It will stretch and inspire you to take your leadership skills to the highest professional standards.

Careers

At a time when recruitment to senior roles in the police is changing, this MSc provides an excellent professional development route. For ambitious police professionals - in the UK and overseas - the qualification will not only showcase their knowledge and abilities but also accelerate their career progress. It provides a vital next step for those who have developed general business and leadership skills but need to operate in a higher profile context.

The course will also act as an important stepping stone for middle or senior managers in other sectors who are keen to move into police leadership. In addition, it will help graduates in subjects such as criminology or business to build an impressive CV and prepare for managerial roles in policing, security or related fields.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Independent Studies in Policing
  • You’ll propose a realistic research issue within the context of policing, criminology or the criminal justice sector. You’ll then plan its execution, demonstrating a critical awareness of relevant literature and theories. 
  • You’ll be supervised by an Independent Studies Supervisor who can assist you during each stage of the process from selecting your topic and researching the context to presenting your findings.
