Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson met with policing undergraduates recently (December 2nd) when he was invited to deliver a guest lecture at Wolverhampton University.
As part of its module on Police Accountability, the university asked the Commissioner to provide its final year students with an overview of the role of the PCC.
Dr John McDaniel, a Principal Lecturer in Police Leadership and Management at Wolverhampton University, said: “The students were very interested to hear Mr Jamieson’s first-hand account of the role and in particular how the police are held to account by the PCC on behalf of the public. His lecture was very well received and the commissioner fielded a number of questions afterwards in a forthright and entertaining manner.”
The three-year degree in Policing not only equips graduates with the necessary skills and knowledge for a career within the force, but also provides them with career pathways into intelligence analysis, security services and other civilian roles.
David Jamieson commented: “As a former maths teacher, it’s been a long time since I’ve stood in front of a group of students to deliver a lecture. The question and answer session resulted in an insightful discussion and proved that the students had given the subject of police accountability serious consideration. I wish them well in the rest of their studies and every success in their chosen careers.”Back to News Archive
