It takes a criminal to catch a criminal !
14th November 2018
BSc Policing students were put through their paces in the University of Gloucestershire’s Crime House this week when they were asked to respond to a report of a domestic burglary.
Unbeknown to the students the ‘criminal’, former police officer and policing lecturer, John Clay-Davies, was still lurking on the premises waiting to make good his escape from the scene.

John said, “Using the Crime House allows us to inject a sense of reality into our student practicals. Policing is seldom straight forward and it is always good to have a few surprises up our sleeve”.
