The Initial Police Learning and Development Programme (IPLDP) is structured around National Occupational Standards (NOS), against which new officers will be trained and assessed. This book, written by police officers, introduces student officers to the key competency areas and elementary skills required. It introduces the key policing skills and guides the reader through typical scenarios, addressing issues in the context of modern policing, and of the relevant professional competencies and occupational standards. This latest edition has been expanded with chapters on the core policing skills, and includes references to the NOS.

"I've been a police officer for 22 years and this book is well overdue. Gary Fraser et al have really hit the mark" (Amazon.co.uk Review)


I have used this book to assist in the design of the course. It provides some clear examples and is well presented. I have listed it in the course reading list.
