Blackstone's Police Investigators' Manual: 2011 by Paul Connor
The Blackstone's Police Investigators' Manual 2011 is the only official study text (used alongside the Investigators' Workbook 2011) 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 & Gun Crime, and Sexual Offences. It also covers the relevant PACE Codes of Practice and chapters on RIPA 2000, Proceeds of Crime, and Entry Search and Seizure Powers. Now in its ninth edition, this Manual is fully updated for 2011 with new case law and legislation, including the Coroners and Justice Act 2009, the Policing and Crime Act 2009, the Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Covert Human Intelligence Sources: Matters Subject to Legal Privilege) Order 2009 , and the consolidated Criminal Procedure Rules 2010.
