Praise for the previous edition:
Offers comprehensive coverage of key policing topics. It is easy to navigate and the chapters provide clear aims and objectives. The study questions at the end of each chapter provide students with a mechanism to review each chapter and consider what they have learned.

This book is a clearly written account of the progress of policing in the United Kingdom, a welcome and unfettered approach to the subject.
- The Criminal Lawyer
Any student new to criminology or policing will be able to develop their knowledge using this book. Joyce's style of written expression allows for an easy reading experience, without skimming on the details.
- Anna Waistnage, Grimsby Institute of HE & FE
Good for some of the law units, especially applying the law exam, as it has police powers on it.
A well presented and easy to use presentation of policing practice, ideal to support new students through their studies.
This book provides a well-balanced view of major issues in policing. It is structured to facilitate the learners development of knowledge relating to policing and criminology and the additional study questions prompt investigation of key issues. Ideal for undergraduate learners.
Perfect for those students wanting to go into policing, well written and easy to read.
This is a great source of information and is well laid out, so it is easy to read and flick trough, between sections. As an ex-police officer and now a teacher, I have used this to remind me of a lot of points about policing and the law and how I can teach this to the students in the classroom. I must admit that I've learnt a few things that I'd forgotten, from the book as well. Thanks
