Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Blackstone's Handbook for Policing Students 2015 reflects the multitude of avenues into the police force now open to future police officers, from pre-join courses to PCSOs and Specials. Designed specifically to meet the new requirements of police training and developed from the best-selling Blackstone's Student Police Officer Handbook, this book is a must-have for those embarking on a career in the police.

Divided into six parts, representing key stages in your progression from pre-join programs, to initial training and then confirmation, the Handbook leads you through the topics, covering theory, discussion, and practice while developing skills of analysis, problem solving, and forms of reasoning. Coupled with a comprehensive and accessible style, the book ensures you have the knowledge and understanding necessary to undertake independent patrol in a professional and competent manner. Key topics covered include Stop, Search, and Entry; Alcohol and Drug Offences; Sexual Offences; Interviewing; and Intelligence. Parts of initial police training common to all new entrants are easily identified and there are specific chapters on qualification structures and training and assessment, meeting the needs of students whether you are entering policing through pre-join schemes or through an alternative qualification route. This new structure means it is possible for students to omit certain parts of the Handbook whilst still meeting the mandatory requirements of the revised Diploma in Policing.

Blackstone's Handbook for Policing Students 2015 is essential reading whether you are taking the Certificate in Knowledge of Policing, the Diploma in Policing, a policing degree, or are looking to move on from a PCSO or Special Constable role.
