Institute of Professional Policing (IPP)

The Institute of Professional Policing (IPP) is established as a centre of excellence delivering police education, teaching, consultancy and evidence based research in the fields of applied criminology and teaching innovation.
The IPP draws on expertise from the University and Thames Valley Police, together with our expanding group of Visiting Fellows, all of whom have a wealth of experience.  This, together with diverse backgrounds, significantly contributes to the portfolio offered within the Institute.

Alongside an array of undergraduate policing provision, our portfolio includes the Foundation Degree in Policing, offering both educational and practical attainment within the field of policing and is a recognised pre-join qualification with Thames Valley Police. 

The Institute is a College of Policing Approved Provider, delivering the Certificate in Knowledge of Policing at a variety of locations within the Thames Valley area.
