The Police Sciences CPD event for Teachers and Advisers will give you a brilliant insight into the Police Sciences Degree courses at University of South Wales. It will also provide you with up-to-date information on the new entry requirements for all new police officers in England and Wales from 2020. You will have the opportunity to see our outstanding facilities - we are one of the few universities in the world to have a Hydra Simulation Centre, which is used to train police officers at all levels - from Constable to Chief Constable. This means that our students use exactly the same system that the police use to train their staff to be better officers.

The Hydra Simulation helps students practice dealing with realistic scenarios such as major crime enquiries, so they will be able to develop their interview skills for critical incidents. The simulation centre allows students to experience these incidents in a safe learning environment, where they can test their ability to make decisions, take action and see the consequences.

We also have a Crime Scene House where they can practice crime scene investigation techniques on campus, as well as forensic facilities for analysing forensic evidence.
