Overview


The Blackstone's Student Police Officer Handbook Pack 2011 combines the 2011 edition of the Blackstone's Student Police Officer Handbook with the new Blackstone's Student Police Officer Workbook.

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

Fully updated, 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.

Blackstone's Student Police Officer Workbook 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 2011 is a must for all student police officers and their trainers, foundation police studies students, and trainee specials.
