About this Unit
In 2015 this unit replaced by 102314 - Policing Practices. This unit concentrates on the implications for police practice of the legislative framework, police responsibilities including procedures, practices and methods. The content will focus on police decision-making and discretion, and the meaning and practice of police powers. The approach necessary for working with diverse communities is described, analysed and critiqued, as are associated communication practices. Concepts such as the appropriate use of force, the appropriate use of personal information and the proper management of serious and fatal incidents are debated and critiqued. By comparison, examples are drawn from Australian state and federal policing, and international contexts.
