The BPPC is a consolidated police training center, and the campus of the Capital Police for the greater Beijing area. The current location became a campus in September 2003. It is located in the Changping District of northwest Beijing, close to the Ming Tombs and the Badaling Great Wall.
The campus, covering an approximately two kilometer area, has a "large crime scene simulation area, including simulated residential neighborhoods, stores, and banks".  Additionally, the campus has DNA laboratories and state-of-the-art lecture and training facilities. It is the largest police college and training center in Asia.
To join the BPPC, recruits have to pass the national college entrance examination and pass the physical check and fitness test. The recruits need to be Beijing residents. Every year among thousands of the applicants, only around 600 are recruited. Male appliacants are favored. For instance, a class of 40 students has only 6 women.
