Diplomate in Police Psychology
Established in 1989, the Diplomate in Police Psychology is certification by the Society for Police and Criminal Psychology (SPCP) that a member has achieved a high level of knowledge, skills, and competence and is a leader in the field of applied Police Psychology. Through the Diplomate, the Society has long recognized competence among psychologists in many sub-disciplines, including industrial/organizational psychologists, academic psychologists, as well as licensed clinical psychologists. Diplomate status is peer recognition that the individual has achieved a level of knowledge, skills, and competence that exceeds the attainment of a terminal degree. It requires additional study and years of professional experience. The holder of the Diplomate is a capable and accomplished professional in the field of Police Psychology, to whom others can look for leadership and advice.
Attaining the Diplomate requires candidates to undergo a thorough application review and evaluation process conducted by a panel of active Diplomates. SPCP is currently reviewing the current application requirements and evaluation process. New information will be published here as it becomes available. Thank you for your patience.
