We designed this course for people involved in tackling anti-social behaviour, such as professionals from the police force, housing organisations or community safety agencies.
You learn how to find the best methods of dealing with community safety problems. Effective partnership working is vital for identifying local problems and targeting preventive solutions. This course equips you to work alongside other professionals to develop solutions and implement changes that really make a difference.
As part of the course, you critically review an aspect of your organisation’s policy and practice, and draw on good practice to make recommendations for change.
You also complete a detailed study of the legal remedies used to tackle anti-social behaviour and apply these to real life situations. This includes preparing legal documents.
After completing the taught part of the course, you do a supervised work-based project on a topic of your choice.
The course is led by leading experts in the field, Judy Nixonhttp://www.shu.ac.uk/research/cersi/sp-judy-nixon.html and Jane Petriehttp://www.shu.ac.uk/planning/regeneration/staff/petrie.html.
