Critical Thinking and Policing
This book is about thinking, thinking critically. It is also about policing. Thinking critically is one skill that is required of every police officer; it is one of the most critical assets of policing. The greatest advancements in tackling crimes have come from ideas, ideas that are borne from critical thinking.
“Critical Thinking and Policing fills a void in policing literature. It gives police officers the opportunity to learn virtually all that they need to know to be effective in policing. The book not only speaks to critical thinking and policing, but also to day-to-day police work”.
Musiliu A.K. Smith, former inspector-General of police and chairman, police service commission.
“An invaluable intellectual and professional contribution to the discourse on policing”
Mohammed A. Adamu,Inspector-General of police.
