In addition to teaching and further training, research is also one of the central tasks of the university. The research activities are mainly carried out within the framework of national and European security research funding lines.

The direct transfer of new research findings to society and police is ensured by close involvement in teaching and training events, so that police and security-related professional practice can benefit directly. 

Research at the German Police University (DHPol) is based on the integrative approach of administrative and police science. It sees police as a core area of public security administration. This is in close interaction with social developments. Research is mainly focused on the following areas:

  • Management, organisation and administration,
  • operations management, traffic and communication, as well as
  • Crime Investigation and Law.

These focal points are also reflected in the three DHPol departments.
