Büchenbeuren (ots) - 196 young men and 103 young women began their three-year bachelor's degree in police service on the Hahn campus. In the past seven weeks, due to the pandemic, the University of Police had been forced to offer the study to the 1650 police students in six Bachelor courses exclusively digitally. With the welcome of the new course of study, the face-to-face study at the police college is gradually resumed. "It is important to us to give new colleagues the opportunity to get to know each other and the university personally," confirms Friedel Durben, director of the Police University. Taking into account the relevant safety regulations, the course takes place in small groups. In particular, it is important to maintain the necessary safety distance, to wear the mouth and nose cover and to observe the hygiene rules. Interior Minister Roger Lewentz is happy about the new additions for the police. The high number of recruits also testifies to the attractiveness of the police profession. “The beginning of the course is of course one of the special challenges of the corona pandemic; but the police college has prepared well. Direct contact to the university is particularly important for young professionals in the police force. There is a lot of content that cannot only be conveyed digitally. ”
The prospective police officers can expect a modern and scientifically oriented bachelor's degree. In addition to theoretical study sections, it contains a mix of specialist knowledge and practical practical components.
240 of the new students come from Rhineland-Palatinate, the rest come from Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia, Saarland, Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria and a student from Dresden in Saxony, 600 km away.
In addition to the 299 new students at the other locations of the Police College in Wittlich-Wengerohr and Enkenbach-Alsenborn, a total of 120 students from older years also started to study the police in modified form in small groups. The rest of the police commissioner candidates are currently in digital studies or in internships in individual police duty. The university thus guarantees its range of courses for all courses and for the applicant selection process for upcoming appointments
