Well described material which is useful for a generic policing module.
Ethics are a real concern in the criminal justice system. Students need to explore this aspect within policing. This text helps them to do just that.
This is useful as a addition to the main text
Thought provoking for students.
A nicely written book which discusses many of the theoretical and practical problems faced by modern police officers. This would have been a useful reference book in my previous role as a police trainer and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to consider policing in the UK in the 21st Century and particularly officers themselves. In my experience, serving officers rarely consider how and why they act and react in certain ways. This book may help them examine these questions.
This book is aimed at students taking undergraduate programmes in policing and police-related disciplines who need to have a clear and comprehensive understanding of police ethics and values, and how this is understood in policy and applied in an operational setting.
Another excellent book in the Policing Matters range which fits so well into the foundation policing degrees which we offer at Bishop Burton College. This book offers much to an area which has limited books and journals for students to refer to.
Good easy to read entry level book for first year students on a crime degree
This is an excellent book which we tend to use alongside another in the same series entitles 'Equality and diversity in policing'
A good insight for new recruits with thought provoking reflective tasks. The books work out expensive if a whole series is bought, however, good for specifics.
The chapters on ethnicity, discrimination, public order and use of force were all very useful for generating discussion and promoting wider reading.
An excellent discussion of the role of ethics in policing covering a broad range of topics that will be really useful to my students.
MacVean is well known in Criminology and this is a good basic text on the nature of police ethics
Although it is a valuable book and I will be suggesting it as part of further reading for the training I deliver, I cannot realistically recommend it to my organisation as a 'must have' text.
I like the layout and the content very much. In keeping with this series, the examples used, activities and reflection points all aid the reader. The topics covered are of utmost importance to any police officer, or anyone planning on joining any part of the police service.
