This book provides a comprehensive introduction to Scottish policing. Written by an ex-senior police officer, this book offers a unique account and insight into the Scottish police organisation and what 'makes a Scottish Police Officer'. Traditional policing is undergoing significant change in Scotland and the profile of the police officer differs greatly from that of the past. This is no more so than in recruitment and training, which is vital to success in any organisation - the Scottish Police is no different. This book takes an informative approach to explain the #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;making of a police officer#xE2;#xAC;" from the point of recruitment through to formal and #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;on-the-job#xE2;#xAC;" training. Specialist courses and training will also be covered in a general form. The book takes the reader on a journey from the beginning of an officer#xE2;#xAC;"s career through the processes of teaching and moulding the individual into what we describe as the #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;Scottish Police Officer#xE2;#xAC;", and in doing so, introduces the reader to Scottish Policing in the 21stcentury. This will be an essential text for police officers in Scotland and elsewhere and students and academics in the areas of law, politics, management, police studies, criminology and criminal justice.
