Overview

A must-have for all student police officers and their trainers, the fifth edition of this book ensures student police officers have the knowledge and understanding necessary to undertake independent patrol in a professional and competent manner.

Fully updated for the fifth edition, the Handbook takes into account all recent legislation and developments, including the Policing and Crime Act 2009, the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 and revisions to the Sexual Offences Act 2003 and the Confiscation of Alcohol (Young Persons) Act 1997.

Blackstone's Student Police Officer Handbook provides not only the background required for the Initial Police Learning and Development Programme (IPLDP) and the embedded National Occupational Standards (NOS), but is also the only book to cover all the knowledge requirements for the new Diploma in Policing. The book also makes reference to the IPLDP syllabus and covers key learning material such as the SOLAP, PAC, Learning Diary and PIP, as well as identifying the relationship between the Diploma in Policing and the NOS.

The book covers the key topics that every student police officer is required to know, including Stop, Search, and Entry, Managing People and Incidents in the Community, and Crime Scenes and Forensic Investigation. Each chapter leads the student through the topic, covering theory, discussion and practice while developing skills of analysis, problem solving and forms of reasoning. The chapters also contain frequent reference to the Diploma in Policing assessed units so that students can consolidate links between the subject area and the relevant unit.

Also available is the new companion volume Blackstone's Student Police Officer Workbook, providing practical scenarios and exercises to complement the contents of the Handbook.
