International Academy

We support the development of professional and accountable policing throughout the world by delivering effective learning and training assistance in the fields of operational policing and police leadership.

The International Academy is a world-leading operational command, leadership and advisory policing organisation. Our team supports the development of professional and accountable policing throughout the world, and we deliver training in operational policing and police leadership.

The Academy is at the forefront of UK and international efforts to enhance and improve the role of policing in delivering citizen safety and security. Our work is focused on the ongoing professional and personal development of police leaders and teams from around the globe, principally through our leadership programmes.

My team of superintendent police advisors work in partnership with international law enforcement colleagues and governments to advise and assist in organisational, operational and technological police training and development projects. Examples of this work are shown in our case studies.

The Academy acts as a gateway to UK policing skills, practice and expertise. We work on behalf of the UK Government and UK policing to support international assistance programmes.

Above all, we are committed to improving the professional capability of police leaders and their teams globally, through the effective implementation of security sector reform police training and development projects.
