Reflective practice is a key element of both police training and police practice in the 21st century. This text provides an essential guide to reflective practice for all those studying for degrees and foundation degrees in policing. Taking an accessible and practical approach, the book considers four broad areas. It looks at what reflective practice is, including practical models of reflection, and discusses why it is important. It examines reflective practice within the specific context of policing through a range of case studies and examples, and considers the vital role of reflective practice as part of continuing professional development.
