Police education and critical thinking : a case study of Singapore police program
Dean, Geoff (2006) Police education and critical thinking : a case study of Singapore police program. Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences Today, 31(2), pp. 1-15.
The focus of the paper is on the role of critical thinking in assisting police officers to make the transition from a procedurally-based method of training to a higher education style of learning that emphasizes a self-directed, reflective form of professional practice. A specially-designed university course for the Singapore Police Force is used as a case study to highlight the journey from training to education.
