RDI in brief - Police University College
TKI lyhyesti sisältö englanti
Research, development and innovation activities (RDI) in brief
We are Finland's only higher education institution specializing in police research. We engage in applied research and development, serving the planning and development of policing and internal security. The data produced is also used for education at the Police University College.
We are active in both national and international RDI projects, having been involved, for example, in numerous EU-funded projects in the field of security. Our RDI partners include national and international stakeholders of the police, universities and research institutions, and companies and other organizations.
We publish research data
We publish research data and textbooks in Polamk’s own publication series. The themes of the publications revolve around policing in particular, but also the promotion of internal security in a wider sense.
You can read theses made by our students through the common Theseus service of universities of applied sciences. The theses are available in Finnish and Swedish.
We follow good research practice
The Police University College is committed to good research practice guidelines. We develop our operations in accordance with the principles of open science and research.
Students involved in the projects
Police students can participate in Polamk’s RDI projects as part of their studies. Students design and implement security-related RDI projects in cooperation with the customer.
Police statistics and operating environment analysis
Police statistics are compiled by the National Police Board’s analysis function.
The Police Operating Environment reviews published by Polamk can be found on our website’s RDI project page.
