This unit provides students with an understanding of the the complex contexts of diversity that can inform policing practice in productive and unproductive ways. This unit follows on from HSP108 What is Policing. It provides knowledge around contemporary ways of doing policing work, the primary organisations and partnerships involved with policing, and critical discussion of the impact of elements of policing work on victims/offenders.
