Blackstone's Police Investigators' Manual: 2009 by Paul Connor
The Blackstone's Police Investigators' Manual 2009 is the only official study text (along with the Investigators' Workbook 2009) for the National Investigators' Exam (NIE), which is taken as part of Phase 1 of the Initial Crime Investigators' Development Programme. Based on the bestselling Blackstone's Police Manuals, it provides all the legal information which is relevant to the role of a trainee investigator, namely in the areas of Evidence, Property Offences, Assaults, Drugs, Firearms & Defences, Sexual Offences, and Offences Against Children. It also covers the relevant PACE Codes of Practice and chapters on RIPA 2000 and Entry Search and Seizure Powers. Now in its seventh edition, this Manual is fully updated for 2009 with new case law and legislation, including the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 and updates to the Police and Justice Act 2006, the Criminal Justice Act 2003, and the Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006. It also includes information on the Fraud Act 2006, the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act 2004, and the revised PACE Codes of Practice 2008.
