Police Training and Education

Our project is rooted in policing practice and international policing expertise.

The Norwegian Police University College is responsible for the police training work package, and has established an extensive network of policing experts from around the world who consult project researchers on a voluntary basis.

The work package will in due course use research findings to establish a ‘best practice’ police training method and curricula for community-oriented policing. A special focus is on data analytics, which Thomas Knape and Applied Intelligence Analytics  are working specifically on. Of interest here is the possible relevance but also the ethical pitfalls of the use of big data in community-based policing.

Chief Superintendent at the Norwegian Police University College Tor Damkaas leads the work package. The other work package team members are:

  • Jaishankar Ganapathy, PHS
  • Thomas Knape, Applied Intelligence Analytics
  • Robin Hofman, Ruhr University Bochum
