Pauline has also been involved in the development of policing and education programmes on a national and international level.  This work included the first Foundation Degree in Police Studies for newly recruited police officers with Cleveland Police in 2004, followed by a Foundation Degree in Professional Policing in 2005 for West Mercia Constabulary.  She has provided consultancy and mentoring to colleagues at the Kigali Institute of Education, the National University of Rwanda, and the Rwandan National Police in 2007 on a capacity building project for degree-level initial police training in Rwanda, funded by the British Council.

Following the completion of an intensive one-week training programme in June 2015 at the Inside-Out Centre, Temple University in Philadelphia, Pauline became a fully trained Inside-Out Prison Exchange Facilitator-Instructor.
