Description - Crime by Fraser Sampson

Blackstone's Police Manuals are the leading police reference texts in the UK. In addition to being the only offical study guides for the police promotion examinations in England and Wales, and a recognised text for student police officers, the Manuals have quickly established themselves as the definitive reference sources for all who have involvement with police law and procedure. The Manuals have been written in consultation with police forces across England and Wales, and are endorsed by the National Policing Improvement Agency, for OSPRE Part 1 Promotion Examinations. Blackstone's Police Manual Volume 1 Crime: 2009 covers all aspects of criminal law and procedure from a police officer's perspective. The 2009 edition has been updated to incorporate all recent legislative developments, including the Corporate Manslaughter & Corporate Homicide Act 2007, changes to police powers under the Mental Health Act 1983, changes to the Sexual Offences Act 2003 (with a new section of the chapter dealing with ss. 5 and 6 of the Mental Capacity Act 2005), and a discussion of the changes likely to occur from the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006.Relevant subjects covered include Controlled Drugs, Assault and Racially Aggravated Offences, State of Mind, Protection of Children, and Witnesses and Jurors. The Manuals continue to be the most accessible, relevant, and focussed revision materials for Promotion Examinations. They are widely used in the professional development of police officers in a variety of roles making them essential reading for anyone with an interest in police and criminal law. Whether you are a serving police officer or police trainer, a practitioner, advisor, or researcher, Blackstone's Police Manuals 2009 are an essential purchase. The other three titles in the series are: Volume 2: Evidence and Procedure 2009, Volume 3: Road Policing 2009, Volume 4: General Police Duties 2009.
