Higher Education and Police: An International Perspective [book review]

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Abstract

The occupation of a police officer is no longer a ‘cradle to grave’ career. Contemporary police practice requires a flexible and mobile labour market in the same way professions such as law, teaching, social work, and medicine requires. An important initiative to support current police practitioners, and the police services that employ them, is to develop a professionalized model of policing that ensures individual practitioners gain educational qualifications and are exposed to continuing development. Rogers and Frevel provides a comprehensive edited collection that offers insightful, international, perspectives of police professionalization in the form of police education within higher education (HE).
