Milleks politseinikele kõrgharidus?

Higher police education is, for instance, expected to improve police occupational culture and ethical awareness of officers, to help the police adapt to changes in society, to raise professional status, and to increase police legitimacy.

Autorite ambitsioon:

we aim to analyse the politics of higher police education from an international perspective, by concentrating on the introduction of higher police education in three Northwestern European countries: Norway, Finland, and North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) (Germany). The purpose of this analysis is to uncover which actors and what circumstances, views, expectations, and arguments have been involved in this process.
