WP4 – Police Training and Education

Our project has been rooted in policing practice and international policing expertise.

The Norwegian Police University College was responsible for the police training work package, and has established an extensive network of policing experts from around the world who consult project researchers on a voluntary basis.

The work package has used research findings to establish a ‘best practice’ police training method and curricula for community-oriented policing. Of interest here is the possible relevance but also the ethical pitfalls of the use of big data in community-based policing.
