Police training managers, public protection leads and crime training managers from 36 forces have taken part in a training event to launch our public protection learning programme.
The "Learning within public protection" area ensures a basic working knowledge of the 13 core disciplines of public protection:
The public protection learning package has been specifically designed as part of the National Policing Curriculum and has been developed at three levels:
The College's Head of Learning Strategy and Development, Helen Schofield, said:
"For training purposes, all of the strands of public protection are interlinked so that officers understand that, for example, a victim of domestic abuse may become a victim of stalking and potentially homicide; trafficked children may be sexually exploited; and adults who are vulnerable through mental ill health may be harassed and bullied and subject to economic fraud.
"To support this, we have also developed a suite of seven e-learning modules accessible to all 300,000 users of our online learning platform, including partner agencies, and four immersive or simulated learning exercises."
We are also looking at any implications for training arising from the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill as it relates to public protection. This will be embedded in the curriculum in due course. The Bill includes additional provisions around protection from sexual harm and violence, and also new offences for forced marriage.
