This subject develops students' understanding of vulnerability in relation to the policing role and function. Students will consider the interconnectedness of social problems and legal and social welfare interventions, and the inter-agency aspect of police work. To fully understand the ways in which police can and should deal with complex socio-legal problems, students will learn the key principles of Problem-Oriented Policing (POP) theory. Such theory encourages police to work outside a purely enforcement paradigm, and instead find ways of preventing and solving, or minimising, problems that may escalate into criminal matters.
