Coupled with a comprehensive and accessible style, the book ensures you have the knowledge and understanding necessary to undertake independent patrol in a professional and competent manner. Key topics covered include stop, search and entry; alcohol and drug offences; sexual offences; interviewing; and intelligence, as well as a new chapter on cybercrime.
