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.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
