Associate Degree in Policing Practice

The aim of the Associate Degree in Policing Practice (ADPP) is to produce graduates who:

The confirmed Constable will have achieved a standard of proficiency where they are capable of dealing with all situations encountered in the course of their duties and of carrying out any function or investigation for any event that is not overly complex or of a protracted nature. The officer will be able to identify situations where referral is required; undertake to finality, where appropriate, all investigations, inquiries, documentation, administration, customer service and support; and work with minimal supervision.
