Course summary

Study the historical rise of the detective, from the early days of the police into the modern era. Criminal investigation is a central part of police activity, and from looking at the news every day we can see how it influences the public perception of the police and their accountability and legitimacy. The increase in crime, and the way crime is committed today, provides very different challenges to the detectives of the past. On this course you will adopt a critical approach to criminal investigations, exploring police effectiveness in historic sexual and homicide investigations, public protection, and covert operations. You will also seek to understand the current context within which detectives work, including a national shortage of detectives, government austerity measures and the rise in technology and complex criminality.
