BTP DOCOs access Designing Out Crime qualification

British Transport Police (BTP) Designing Out Crime Officers (DOCO's), led by the Design Out Crime Manager, have started with the Academy on a distance learning pathway to achieve the Level 5 designing out crime qualification.  

The Academy’s unique distance learning pathway offers experienced DOCOs the opportunity to put their prior experience and learning towards the accredited qualification which is now completed by all new DOCOs coming into post.  The Academy with its’ exclusive link to the Secured by Design initiative was responsible for developing and registering the accredited Level 5 designing out crime qualification in 2018 with the awarding body ProQual to replace the Design Out Crime module that had previously been offered by the College of Policing.
