The Police University College of Finland, located in Tampere, is a training institute under the direction of the Ministry of the Interior. It is responsible for police training recruitment, for selection of students for diploma and advanced programmes, for organizing diploma and advanced studies, for further training given in the training institute and for research and development in the police field. The training is given in Finnish and also in Swedish.

The Police University College is Finlands only higher education institution specializing in police research. More than 20 full-time experts are employed in research and development related positions. Also the teachers and students participate in project work.

The research, development and innovation activities (RDI) at the Police College focus on three areas: Police work and organisation, Policing and Police in society. They are mainly based on the social and behavioral science perspectives but touch also the fields such as law and technology.

Research cooperation also extends to public sector, businesses and the third sector. Our role in police education, training and good relations to practical police work provide an excellent opportunity participate both in RDI- and end-user activities.
