Institutes and Departments of the Faculty of Law Enforcement

The core activity of our Institute is to teach criminal sciences at BA and MA level, not only for the Faculty of Law Enforcement, but all Faculties in the frame of the ‘comprehensive module’. The subjects delivered exclusively by our Institute are the following: Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure Law, Criminology and Public Administration Criminal Law.

The Institute consists of 4 departments:

  • The Department of Criminal Law

Institute of Public Law Enforcement and Applied Management Theory

The areas of science covered by the Institute are: police science; psychology; sociology; jurisprudence and law enforcement management. Since its foundation in 2013, the Institute has coordinated and developed a new training structure and curriculum content, both consisting of interdependent elements. The Institute is actively involved in conducting training and examinations at a variety of law enforcement agencies and organises a wide range of scientific and professional conferences.

The Institute consists of three departments:

  • Department of Law Enforcement Management Theory
  • Department of Behavioural Sciences
  • Department of Applied Law Enforcement Sciences

Institute of Law Enforcement Training and Education

The Institute began its operations on 31 January 2012. It is involved in delivering subjects related to introducing organisational culture, practical skills in taking police measures, formal training, as well as marksmanship and IT, including the operation of the ITC systems used by law enforcement agencies.

Our main goal is to develop the students’ sense of policing identity, their formal and service disciplines, socialisation in law enforcement, physical fitness and command skills. We prepare the first year full-time students within the policing specialisations for the special examination for guards and patrols. We organise and conduct their exams as well as the training for second-year full time students in support units activities and other, extra-mural trainings.

It is involved in the development of the directions of research, the assessment of scientific achievements and providing new research staff. It gives opinion on and coordinates the annual research schedules of the scientific organisational units of the Faculty and initiates joint research. It gives proposals on drafting the scientific budget of the Faculty and on the definition and distribution of the research fund. It organises discussions of PhD theses and initiates the organisation of scientific conferences, the foundation of scholarships and submitting proposals for projects. It helps with the provision of new research staff for the research units at the Faculty, monitors and facilitates the application of research outcomes in training.
