Policing Matters Series
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. In my opinion, it is aimed more at the practitioners, rather than academics but this should be seen as a strength. Few authors have feet in both camps, and Neyround shows that this should something to be encouraged.
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.
