Chapter Summary

The ability of police officials to maintain the highest standards of conduct and professionalism in meeting the needs and expectations of citizens is at the core of effective human resource management. Human Resource Management has eight distinct elements: recruitment and selection; equal opportunities; performance and motivation; pay and other benefits; health, safety and welfare; employee relations; organisational development; training and development. The elements are interlinked to provide a strategic approach to the management of people within an organisation, thus ensuring that the organisation obtains the greatest possible benefit from their abilities. Human rights education for police should be designed and delivered to affect the attitudes and the behaviour of police officials for effective, lawful and humane policing. In order to successfully implement human rights programmes for police, teachers and trainers must have expertise in policing, the education or training of police officials, and in the international standards relevant to policing.
