Reflection and reflexivity are important components of professional practice in the field of policing. This paper argues that reflexivity goes beyond mere “thinking« and describes a struc­ture of reflection on three levels, each of which is linked to different core questions. While on a low­threshold level of reflection the focus is on the question of correct actions, reflection on a higher level revolves around uncovering one’s own action­guiding assumptions that (in)consciously influence one’s actions, as well as the possibility of adopting oth­er perspectives. Both are a necessary prerequisite for the reflective practition­ er and especially for conflict management with the police profession.
