About this Unit
This unit concentrates on the implications for police practice of the legislative framework, and 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 and analysed, as are associated communication practices. Concepts examined include the appropriate use of force, the appropriate use of personal information and the characteristics of ethical policing practice. Although the key focus of learning relates to the New South Wales Police Force; examples are also drawn from Australian state and federal policing as well as international policing contexts.
