Summary

Blackstone's Police Operational Handbook 2014 is designed specifically to meet the reference needs of officers while out on patrol. Written in a concise and accessible style, it covers a wide range of common offences and clearly explains and interprets the relevant legislation. Using clear and consistent presentation throughout, each chapter offers you a definition of the offence, the points to prove, and a clear system of icons covering police powers and mode of trial. At a glance, you can access everything you need to make a quick, informed decision in a host of everyday policing situations.

The eighth edition of this highly regarded and successful Handbook is fully updated to include all recent legislative developments and further changes to the law, including: the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012, the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012, the Terrorism Act 2000, and the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims (Amendment) Act 2012. The book also includes information on the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011, the Education Act 2011, changes to PACE Codes A, C, G and H, and new HO/MOJ Circulars guidance.

Whatever your role - police patrol officer, supervisor, student police officer, PCSO or Special Constable - this is an invaluable tool for operational personnel.
