Introduction: Higher Police Education—An International Perspective

  • Colin Rogers
  • Bernhard Frevel


When considering the future of policing one thing is certain. Policing does not exist in a vacuum. It is impacted upon daily and, in the long term, by changes in the social, political, economic, technological, environmental and legal structures, in whatever country it is practised. It therefore follows that the future structure and activities of policing will be shaped by the future changes within these and other activities.
