Police apprentices from Germany and the Netherlands joined BSc (Hons) Police Sciences students from the University of South Wales last week to learn about policing in the different countries.
the week, the students were put through simulations in the University’s Hydra Minerva Suite.
simulations focused on domestic abuse, critical incidents, public order and
officer safety and aimed to challenge how the students would respond to situations
within their own countries.
Welch from the University of South Wales, who helped to organise the summer school said:
“The week provoked many discussions about how the students would respond to
incidents, taking into considerations the different laws and policing techniques
that each country uses.
the students can take what they have learned during the week and incorporate it
into their studies, whether that is looking at solving a problem differently or
questioning how they would respond to an issue or incident.”
the week, the students were also taken to a number of sites across South Wales
including Cardiff City Stadium as part of the discussions looking at dealing
with public order incidents.
summer school was opened by the Chief Constable of South Wales Police, Peter Vaughan,
and a number of guest speakers spoke to the group during the week.
Rogers, Professor of Police Sciences at the University, said: “This is the
sixth year the summer school has run and the student experience is invaluable.
Being exposed to other ideas about policing will only help produce reflective
students and we hope, future practitioners.”
