Many would-be entrants to the police service are unsuccessful because at some point in the assessment system they fail to demonstrate their full potential. Failure may be the result of a variety of factors such as: stress and anxiety; being unable to cope with the psychometric tests; having to perform in front of other people while being observed and evaluated. If you are applying to join a police force in England or Wales, How to Pass the Police Selection System will help you to do your very best in every part of the assessment and achieve your goal. It provides essential guidance on all aspects of the selection process, including: entry requirements and competencies; completion of the application form; the assessment centre; psychometric tests; role-play and written exercises; the assessment centre interview and the job-related fitness test, making it the most comprehensive guide to the new police recruitment procedures available.

Crime is often perceived as an urban issue rather than a problem that occurs in rural areas, but how far is this view tenable? This book explores the relationship between crime and community in rural areas and addresses the notion of safety as part of the community dynamics in such areas. Rural Crime and Community Safety makes a significant contribution to crime science and integrates a range of theories to understand patterns of crime and perceived safety in rural contexts. Based on a wealth of original research, Ceccato combines spatial methods with qualitative analysis to examine, in detail, farm and wildlife crime, youth related crimes and gendered violence in rural settings. Making the most of the expanding field of Criminology and of the growing professional inquiry into crime and crime prevention in rural areas; rural development; and the social sustainability of rural areas, this book builds a bridge by connecting Criminology and Human Geography. This book will be suitable for academics, students and practitioners in the fields of criminology, community safety, rural studies, rural development and gender studies.

Etwa fünfzig Kilometer vom südwestlichsten Zipfel von Cornwall entfernt liegen die Scilly-Inseln. Wunderschöne Gärten, Sonnenuntergänge unter Palmen, ein weiter Blick aufs Meer: Die Inselgruppe mitten im Atlantik ist ein wahres Idyll. Und Sergeant Colin Taylor der Mann, der entschlossen einschreitet, wenn die Luft brennt – egal, ob ein Streit zwischen angeheiterten Küchenchefs oder erhitzten Pub-Besuchern entflammt oder jemand einen wuchtigen Anker wegzuschleppen versucht. Auch bei den durchschnittlich drei gestohlenen Fahrrädern im Jahr bleibt der lustige Polizist entspannt, denn: „Wirklich weit kommt man mit dem Diebesgut ja sowieso nicht.“ Mit hinreißendem britischem Witz und Charme schreibt der Scilly Sergeant über seine Abenteuer als Insel-Bobby.
