As a window college for Shanghai University of Political Science and Law to promote the management reform of secondary colleges, it is also a co-founded college with the Shanghai Bureau of Justice. In the combination of our complex school running level, school running characteristics, and the talent training goal and school running reality of the undergraduate prison science major, the Police College insists on the school running orientation of taking strong roots in judicial administration, facing to the political science and law system,serving to social governance,and the basic school strategy asmeeting the needs of the industry, highlighting the characteristics of the police, and basing on practical teaching. On the basis of the above principles,our college is promoting the both vocations mechanism,to accept the deputy director of the police management of the practical department, and to encourage teachers to take temporary duty in prison, drug treatment, community correction, public security system and other practical departments.

The last point is to promote the development of the professional talent training mechanism of public security science (criminal science and technology, foreign-related police affairs, etc.) of our university from the national, local and college three aspects.In a word, after our School of Policing Studies going back on the right track, the number of talent developing is about 400 people every year, and the total number of police cadets and graduate students in the Academy is about 1100.
