Overview

Blackstone's Student Police Officer Handbook, Second Edition 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). Fully updated for the second edition, the content of each chapter links closely to the new and revised 22 National Occupational Standards for the IPLDP curriculum which were introduced in 2007. This book ensures that the student police officer can effectively demonstrate that they are meeting the 22 National Occupational Standards which must be attained for intial 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 text allows students to relate academic study to their work in practice. Clearly laid out and very practical, each chapter contains many useful examples and learning aids including flowcharts, exercises, scenarios, law summaries and checklists. At the end of each chapter, conclusion boxes give students the opportunity to consolidate links between the subject they have just learnt and the National Occupational Standards. The book also demonstrates the links between the Standards and the other professional qualifications required by student police officers, such as PIP level 1.

This book 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 .

This book has been designed specifically by practitioners to support students and trainers during initial learning programmes, whether that takes place in force or in combination with further or higher education establishments. With new coverage of key legislation such as the Fraud Act 2006, the Road Safety Act 2006 and the PACE Code of Practice for the detention of terrorism suspects (Code H), this title also includes important information on Police Health and Safety Policy: a must for all student police officers and their trainers, foundation police studies students, and trainee specials.
