Blackstone's Preparing for Police Duty - Fourth Edition

Blackstone's Preparing for Police Duty - Fourth Edition is a fully revised fourth edition of the successful Blackstone's Preparing for Police Duty, the invaluable introduction to the police service for new recruits or those considering a policing career.

This highly practical guide informs those interested in a career in the police about the general culture of the policing world; the extended police family, dress-code, badges, shift patterns, equipment and basic information on police powers in relation to the most common crimes.

The new edition offers an easy-to-understand outline of the criminal justice system and a summary of the criminal law, and has been fully updated to include the latest changes in the recruitment and entry procedures, as well as new content on policing terrorism, public protest, and neighbourhood policing.

Written by an experienced serving police officer, Blackstone's Preparing for Police Duty is an accessible, motivational and informative guide for anyone considering a career in the police service, those on foundation and policing degree courses, and anyone who has recently secured a place as a student officer.

Readership: Recent graduates, A-level students, and school leavers considering a career in the police, those applying for the IPLDP training programme, as well as student officers, undergraduate policing degree and pre-entry course students, and students on public service and emergency service courses in HE and FE colleges.
