Not Available on


The Blackstone's Student Police Officer Handbook Pack 2010 combines the 2010 edition of the Blackstone's Student Police Officer Handbook with the new Blackstone's Student Police Officer Workbook 2010.

The fourth edition of Blackstone's Student Police Officer Handbook is a key text for student police officers undergoing their initial police training and provides all the underpinning subject matter and skills development materials required for the Initial Police Learning and Development Programme (IPLDP). It provides the knowledge and understanding necessary for a student officer to undertake independent patrol in a professional and competent manner, allowing students to cultivate appropriate transferable skills for further study and career development within policing and related occupational areas.

Fully updated for the fourth edition, the Handbook incorporates recent changes to the National Occupational Standards and new content and updated legislation on stop and search powers under the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2000, the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, the reclassification of cannabis, and the amended PACE Code A.

This book ensures that the student police officer can effectively demonstrate that they are meeting all the National Occupational Standards which must be attained for initial policing. Each of the five phases of initial training is covered in detail with clear descriptions of the legal, social and professional context of student officer development coupled with self-assessment tasks that test knowledge and understanding. The book also demonstrates the links between the Standards and the other professional qualifications required by student police officers, such as PIP level 1.

Blackstone's Student Police Officer Workbook 2010 serves to complement the Handbook by offering a structured series of practical scenarios and exercises to improve students' understanding of the legislative and procedural content covered in the Handbook. The Workbook focuses on the key themes of the IPLDP syllabus such as communication skills, upholding human rights, forensic awareness, use of criminal intelligence, arrest and detention, and reporting and record keeping. These themes are explored through realistic scenarios, from drink and drug driving to shoplifting and internet sexual grooming, and are steeped in the authors' own operational experience of policing. The scenarios are structured to enable the reader, first, to understand fully the context of the incident and then to respond to questions set within the text. The Workbook also uses other features to test understanding such as multiple choice questions and 'gapped' statements.

The Blackstone's Student Police Officer Handbook Pack 2010 is a must for all student police officers and their trainers, foundation police studies students, and trainee specials.
