comment What does a 交番 look like?
I've never been to London, so I don't know. I lived in Osaka for two years and saw them all over the place. I think the number of staff in them depends on the actual location and actual 交番 density of the area. For example, in the heart of 梅田 there were tons of 交番, so each one probably only had 4-5 staff in it.

comment What does a 交番 look like?
I think this is borderline off-topic, but I'll leave it. Usually they say 交番 on them, so they're not hard to spot. Also usually on street corners, corner of a building, etc.

Here's an updated version of the book. The version I have is a bit older (1・2級 of the old JLPT system), but I'm sure the contents are fairly similar.

comment “to bite *back*”?
@user213845: Just a warning in case you aren't aware, the 〜返す construct is also used to mean repeat/do again (繰り返す). Context should make the meaning clear.

comment Is the conditional, volitional, AND passive form of verbs used?
The volitional form is not the ~たい form. Where did you hear this? The volitional form of verbs ([意志形]{い・し・けい}) is the ~う・~よう form, like 行こう, 食べよう, などなど.

comment What is the difference between 家{うち}の子{こ}供{ども} versus 私{わたし}の子{こ}供{ども}?
For the OP: this is correct about writing うち in hiragana, because the kanji is more likely to be 内 than 家 anyway.
