Blackstone's Police Q&As 2013 are essential revision tools for all police officers sitting the OSPRE Part 1 promotion examinations. Written in partnership with the best-selling Blackstone's Police Manuals, the only study guides endorsed by the National Policing Improvement Agency, the Q&As' experienced author team follow subjects in the same sequence as the Manuals, providing the most authoritative means of self-testing outside of the Promotion Examinations.
Blackstone's Police Q&As 2013 contains hundreds of multiple-choice questions designed to reinforce knowledge and understanding of the Manuals. Matching the format of the promotions examinations, each Question has a detailed and comprehensive Answer that highlights not only the correct response, but also the reasoning behind the incorrect responses, allowing candidates to highlight any gaps or weaknesses in their knowledge. Full cross-references to the relevant Manual paragraphs and Keynotes support more effective studying and a question checklist helps candidates track their progress.
The 2013 editions of this popular series contain important updates, reflecting changes to the 2013 versions of the Blackstone's Police Manuals. All titles have been updated to include new questions in line with changes to recent legislation, including the Police Detention and Bail Act 2011, the Crime and Security Act 2010, the Criminal Procedure Rules 2011, the Police and Justice Act 2006, and the Coroners and Justice Act 2009.
