Growing complexity and new challenges as tasks of police education. Results of an Explorative Study in Lower Saxony and NRW

This article examines the conditions under which knowledge transfer is practiced at police academies, and the difficul­ties associated with knowledge transfer. Based on empirical findings from a research project on knowledge transfer, the article uses the perspective of involved actors to show that tacit knowledge plays a significant role in knowledge trans­fer. The findings also show that factors such as increased environmental complexity, changed priorities in police ed­ucation, and technological changes all play a particular role in making knowledge transfer in the police more complex and challenging.
