A Gwynedd college is to launch its own police academy from September.
Bangor University is working in partnership with Grwp Llandrillo Menai (GLLM) to offer an undergraduate degree in Professional Policing which is licensed by the College of Policing.
This will introduce students to the skills required to work as a police officer and is building on the highly successful Foundation Degree in Policing that has been offered for some years by GLLM.
Maggie Griffiths, assistant principal at Grwp Llandrillo Menai said: “This new partnership has enabled our two organisations to develop this exciting new undergraduate degree opportunity, combining the extensive academic and practical policing skills of our combined staff.
“The programme is designed to meet the needs of applicants living in the north Wales area and beyond, and to give a robust underpinning knowledge, skills and experience to those aspiring to become police officers.”
Professor Oliver Turnbull, pro vice-chancellor of Bangor University said: “This BSc in Professional Policing builds on our strengths in research in policing and criminology and criminal justice, and is supported by Grwp Llandrillo Menai’s practical policing expertise.
“We are looking forward to welcoming the first student in September 2019, and we’re particularly pleased to be adding another promising undergraduate programme to our portfolio of jointly delivered degrees.”
Police training is changing across Wales and England as a result of a new programme set out by the College of Policing and the National Police Chiefs’ Council.
