International Faculty

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.

*** Unfortunately because of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, all planned overseas training has been cancelled until further notice.***


The International Faculty works in partnership with both UK and foreign governments, and with international law enforcement agencies such as the United Nations, Interpol and the European Union.

Together we offer specialist operational policing advice, police leadership guidance and training and development expertise, in line with the UK Government's priorities. Bespoke training programmes, designed to suit local needs, are delivered both here in the UK and in the client countries.

The International Faculty is made up of a team of International Police Advisors (IPA), each advisor is supported by a dedicated liaison officer for their geographical area.
