    Abstract

    This article results from a series of linked research projects designed to support the development of a Degree Holder Entry Programme in England and Wales, as part of the College of Policing’s Policing Educational Qualification Framework (PEQF). Its aim is to draw out some of the issues that need addressing, and challenges that need solving in the design of any degree-level courses required as an entry qualification for recruits to the police service in England and Wales. It examines the rationale for professionalisation of policing, and how this relates the the development and application of a body of policing knowledge. It considers the main challenges facing the English and Welsh police service in developing an effective policing qualification at degree level.
