Welcoming the Police Crime Prevention Academy – new APSE Approved Partners

Welcoming the Police Crime Prevention Academy – new APSE Approved Partners

 

Established in 2017, the Police Crime Prevention Academy delivers accredited qualifications in the field of Problem Solving, Crime Prevention and Designing Out Crime in the UK.

The Police Crime Prevention Academy is just one initiative belonging to Police Crime Prevention Initiatives and is an Approved Centre for the Awarding Body ProQual, with the qualifications being regulated by Ofqual.

Speaking of the partnership, Head of the Academy Guy Collyer said, “ The work carried out by all local authorities in the UK ties in very closely with local policing. This partnership is long overdue and we see it as another significant stepping stone to bring police and local authority staff together, so that they may work together to solve problems and reduce crime and antisocial behaviour. This will save time and costs to both agencies and bring about safer communities where we live and work”.   

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.

APSE Chief Executive Paul O’Brien said, "Strengthening the link between the police and local government is key to ensuring the safety of diverse communities across the UK. At a time of financial uncertainty, the Academy's courses offer real value for  money; I am in no doubt that this partnership will bring enormous benefits to our members and I very much look forward to working with them."
