Learning in police work

Profile area The research profile Learning in police work is a broad profile that brings together research related to education and learning relevant to police practice and its development.

The profile addresses issues related to police education, the transition between police education and police work, continuing education and professional development.

Research and projects deal with how conditions are created for learning and development of professional knowledge through teaching, exercise, and simulation in both basic and continuing education. Understanding formal and informal structures within the police organization and how these affect the conditions for work, learning and development is part of the profile's focus.

Research and development projects within the profile are conducted within the Unit for Police Work, in collaboration with other departments at Umeå University and with the Police authority. An overall principle for the profile is to conduct practice-oriented research that strengthens the relationship between science and police activities.
