What is this course about?

CSU's Diploma in Policing Investigations has been developed in partnership with the Australian Defence Force Investigative Service (ADFIS) to enhance the professional practice of service police employed as Australian Defence Force Investigators (ADFI).

About the course

This program aims to develop the skills, knowledge and attitude of ADFI by combining vocational instruction in investigations with academic studies in justice and policing.

Participants commence the program via distance education before attending the ADF Investigator Course (ADFIC) at the Defence Police Training Course. This course prepares participants for employment as an ADFI whilst providing further exposure to issues within other police investigative jurisdictions both in Australia and abroad.

Upon successful completion of the ADFIC, participants then complete their academic studies to become eligible for the award, which also articulates with the Bachelor of Policing (Investigations).

Successful participation in this course will broaden the professional knowledge of the participants in the investigations field. Participants will be given the opportunity, and guidance, to be able to improve their communication skills, both verbal and written, and also their ability to apply knowledge and problem solving to areas outside of their normal field of operations. In undertaking the course, the participants will be expected to widen their perspective in policing, to allow for their potential posting to any number of military theatres internationally, and to encourage a greater application of different social and professional issues to their practice.

Distance education subjects can be studied from any location. On-campus subjects will be delivered in-person during the ADF Investigators Course (ADFIC) conducted at the Defence Police Training Centre (DPTC) located at Holsworthy Barracks, Moorebank NSW 2173.

By the end of this program students will be able to:

  • apply relevant aspects of civilian policing and investigative practices to a military environment
