  1. Executive Guidance


    NPPF Step 2 Constable to Sergeant Exam 2018


    Week 8



    Blackstone’s Volume

    Chapter Heading

    Crime Chapter 7

    Firearms and Gun Crime

    Crime Chapter 8

    Racially and Religiously Aggravated Offences

    Crime Chapter 9

    Non Fatal Offences Against the Person

     This week we look at the next three Chapters from the Crime Syllabus book.  Chapter 7, Firearms and Gun Crime, Chapter 8 Racially and Religiously Aggravated Offences, and finally Chapter 9, Non Fatal Offences Against the Person.   

    There are 18 chapters in the Crime Blackstone’s so the fact we are looking at Chapter 9 is a mark of how well we are progressing, you are half way through that syllabus book. 

    So let’s get started with Chapter 7 Firearms and Gun Crime, where to begin, well if we work on the premise that sometimes topical issues come up in the exam then weapons will be a good area to study closely, but Firearms and Gun Crime is historically a good subject for the examiners too, so let’s start there.

    NPPF Step 2 Constable to Sergeant Exam 2018 

    Week 7



    Blackstone’s Volume

    Chapter Heading

    Evidence and Procedure Chapter 2

    Instituting Criminal Proceedings

    Evidence and Procedure Chapter 3


    Evidence and Procedure Chapter 4

    Court Procedure and Witnesses


    This week we go back into the Evidence and Procedure Blackstone’s syllabus book and take in Chapter 2, Instituting Criminal Proceedings, Chapter 3, Bail, and finally Chapter 4, Court Procedure and Witnesses. 

    First up this week then is, Chapter 2 Institution of Criminal Proceedings, this is a nice short chapter, but one that contains a number of good areas to test.  Service of Summons, the how and the where, is a good place to start. It is interesting to note that of the three options, the only one that is a sure way of getting the summons to the person concerned is by handing it to them, but that all three will count as ‘good service’  although there is no certainty the summons ever got to its destination.
