- Blackstone's Practical Policing
Blackstone's Practical Policing: Crime Reduction Partnerships discusses and explains the practical aspects of crime reduction partnerships from a police officer's perspective.
Policing communities in the UK has changed dramatically over the last 20 years, with the partnership approach to crime reduction introducing new ideas and different ways of policing.
The rise in terrorist activity and the realisation that many 'terrorists' come from within our own communities, in particular, has refocused much recent partnership work.
Beginning with a discussion of what a crime reduction partnership is, this book describes how the theory can be put into practice and considers all relevant legislation and case law that has been introduced to deal with crime and disorder using the partnership approach.
Blackstone's Practical Policing: Crime Reduction Partnerships uses a blend of theories and practical examples, including examples of best practice, information boxes, scenario boxes and key points to note. Flowcharts and summary sections are also included to help officers consolidate and apply their knowledge.
Written in an accessible and straightforward manner, Blackstone's Practical Policing: Crime Reduction Partnerships is an essential best practice guide for police officers and other professionals involved in crime reduction activities.
