Brief history

The John Grieve Centre was created in 2003 with a vision to create a community of ideas that spans students, academics, practitioners and policy-makers. Originally located at Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College, the JGC re-located to London Metropolitan University in April 2006.

Through postgraduate teaching and research, public conferences, law enforcement practitioner seminars and consultancy projects, the JGC actively contributes to the emerging academic discipline of police studies and promotes and disseminates expertise, understanding and good practice amongst practitioners.

The JGC enjoys close links with various police organizations and other agencies which not only serve to enhance mutual understanding but also directly contribute to course content for students. Alumni have gone on to work for various police forces and the Serious Organized Crime Agency.
