Established in 2017, the Police Crime Prevention Academy delivers accredited qualifications in the field of Problem Solving, Crime Prevention and Designing Out Crime.
The Academy is an Approved Centre for the Awarding Body ProQual, with the qualifications being regulated by Ofqual. Our main objective is to bring key agencies together in partnership to reduce crime and antisocial behaviour. We can achieve this by delivering independently approved qualifications.
All of the Academy’s qualifications are open to anyone engaged in Security, Policing, and community engagement, who work towards and contribute to supporting safer communities. This includes Police, Local Authorities, Security Staff and others with an interest in building security such as Fire, Architects and Planners.
The qualifications delivered by the Academy are also available and relevant to the private sector, be it business, retail or industrial settings as well as people working at large corporations and visitor attractions.
As well as scheduled national delivery, the qualifications can be delivered locally dependent on delegate numbers and available budget of an organisation. Bespoke solutions can be requested for specific needs within the private sector.
Accredited qualifications represent an investment in staff by employers, and they are portable in the workplace, enabling the holder to use their qualification if they change roles, employer or careers.
The Academy is constantly building on its portfolio of qualifications and also provide a range of Cyber Crime Prevention Courses through the Police Digital Security Centre.
