Command Skills (Tactical and Strategic modules)

These modules are intended for police officers who are required to operate as strategic or tactical commanders in non-specialist environments, eg, the management of critical incidents. This is likely to be chief inspectors, superintendents and police staff or equivalent roles.   

Benefits include:

  • developing a thorough understanding and application of the national decision model in realistic work-based scenarios
  • challenging, evidence-based content providing practical experience and tools to improve operational performance
  • networking and engaging with other senior leaders across the UK and from wider law enforcement agencies.

The Strategic Command Skills module is highly recommended as a prerequisite to the specialist command modules of MAGIC, Strategic Firearms and Gold Public Order Command.
