The University of Central Lancashire’s long-standing reputation for delivering criminal justice practitioners with a range of tailored services has led to an innovative new partnership at its campus in Cyprus.
A special ceremony at the Pyla campus saw a Memorandum of Cooperation signed between the Sovereign Base Areas Police Service (SBA Police Service) and the university.
This landmark agreement forms the basis for the framework for future partnerships between UCLan Cyprus and the SBA Police Service in the areas of education, community and social engagement – with specific focus on UCLan providing continuous professional development programmes to the SBA Police Service.
UCLan Cyprus rector Professor Melinda Tan and the Deputy Chief Constable of the SBA Police Service, Murray Duffin, signed the formal agreement.
Prof Tan said: “We are absolutely delighted to sign this agreement.
“It signifies our real commitment to work together in a mutually beneficial partnership.
“We are fully committed in putting into practice our UCLan values of equality of opportunity and supporting the rights and freedom of our diverse community, and this agreement lays a solid platform to achieve just that.
