Postgraduate Diploma in Policing, Intelligence and Counter Terrorism

Abbreviation: PGDipPICT


The program covers a wide range of issues related to policing, intelligence and counter terrorism in international and national contexts, including the political, cultural, religious, economic and intelligence aspects. The desirability of rigorous analysis, the development of sound policies and the need to understand local and sectional aspirations and ideologies in dealing with particular issues, countries and communities is emphasised. Also considered is the development and implementation of strategies and tactics to counter terrorism and recent case studies are drawn on to evaluate different possible approaches. The impacts of media and modern communications technology on policing, intelligence gathering and security are also dealt with. The program offers some analysis of the challenges, threats and opportunities confronting the Pacific region in particular and will be constantly revised and updated. The program considers both historical and contemporary dilemmas that may influence intelligence gathering and analysis, policy development and implementation in the region.
