The Assistant Chief Constable for Merseyside Police, Jon Roy, delivered a talk to our Upper and Lower Sixth Criminology students yesterday.

At Carmel, we provide lots of opportunities to enhance students’ knowledge and learning through visits from guest speakers who are professionals in their field.

Jon spoke to our students about routes into a police career, the challenges faced by the police force and local cases that the police have been involved in. There was also an opportunity to ask questions during a Question and Answer Session at the end.

Head of Criminology, Darryl Wood, said: “Our students thoroughly enjoyed the experience, gaining some real insights into policing. They learnt about the work the police do with different agencies such as the CPS and HM Courts. They also found out about the many different careers that are available in the police force.”

Criminology is an exciting subject which will allow you to understand crime and deviance in detail. Policing is just one of the many progression routes for which a qualification in Criminology would be useful. Find out more about this exciting and interesting course here
