Policing a Diverse Society by Phil Clements
Book DescriptionPolicing a Diverse Society (Second Edition) is a one-stop, practical resource covering all the major issues associated with policing diversity. Policing in the UK is essentially about policing diversity; diversity issues affect every aspect of the police officer's role and are key to the successful training of police officers. Whilst taking due account of the theoretical perspectives on policing diversity, this text supports and encourages the development of the relevant practical skills required to respond to diversity effectively. This text takes into account the wide range of diversity issues that police officers will need to address in their work. The text has been completely revised to incorporate a number of important developments that have occurred since the first edition was written, such as: recent developments of the newly established combined body, the Commission for Equality and Human Rights; the July 7th Report; the Copenhagen cartoons and the Jean Charles de-Menezes investigation. The second edition also boasts an additional chapter dealing with the six diversity strands that form the focus of police training (race, gender, age, faith, sexuality and disability). This very practical book is written to support the knowledge required by the National Occupational Standards (NOS) on diversity and the Integrated Competency Framework (ICF). Using this book will ensure students achieve these standards. Case studies, exercises, diagrams, reflect on practice boxes and chapter summaries are used to help students understand the material, consolidate their knowledge and apply the concepts to their every day professional work. The book's interactive, accessible style makes it suitable for student police officers working through the IPLDP, those in Higher Education studying for Foundation Degrees and other Policing degrees, as well as anyone engaged in delivering police training in diversity issues.
