National delivery of Level 4 crime prevention accredited qualification

The Academy welcomed delegates representing the police, local authority and the private sector onto the national delivery in May 2022 of the Level 4 Certificate in Crime Prevention for Practitioners.  

This is a national vocational qualification that’s accredited by the awarding body ProQual and which is recognised by UK employers.

The Academy is the only ProQual Approved Centre with the exclusive link to the Secured by Design initiative, the official police security initiative that works to embed crime prevention into the planning process, establish police security standards in the building and construction industry and administers the ‘Police Preferred’ specification scheme that accredits the most effective security products in helping to prevent crime.
