Law for Student Police Officers
- Jonathan Merritt - De Montfort University, UK
This second edition has been fully revised to expand the content, take account of recent changes and reflect the latest legislation. In particular there is a new chapter on PCSOs, the sections on police powers, roads policing, animals and evidence have been updated and the issue of diversity has been woven into an increased number of scenarios.
"An excellent reference that helps apply the law relating to policing and criminal justice. Essential for new police officers." (Head of Department, St Helens College.)
I would recommend this book to those students wishing to follow a career in the police service, as it gives a comprehensive overview of the laws required and how they can be used by Bobbies in their jobs. Good content and good knowledge checks within.
