How does it feel to be a police officer? We’re very pleased to announce the publication of The Policing Mind, written by our Police Care UK Director of Research, Dr Jessica Miller.
In her new book, Dr Miller uses the most recent neuroscience and real-life examples to explore risks to individual resilience. A compulsory read for anyone with an interest in policing, the book offers practical resilience techniques and policy recommendations for police officers facing crime in a post-COVID world.
Don’t just take our word for it! Jackie Malton, retired Detective Chief Inspector and the inspiration for Prime Suspect said: “I worked as a detective witnessing trauma and suffering in an era when the advice was ‘go to the pub’. If we want to truly understand the policing brain, what happens to us and how we heal ourselves, the answers are here. The Policing Mind is essential reading for all police officers, police leaders and staff.”
