Blackstone's Police Investigators' Workbook: 2007 by Paul Connor
"The Blackstone's Police Investigators' Workbook 2007" is the official accompanying study text for the National Investigator's Exam (NIE) which is taken as part of Phase 1 of the Initial Crime Investigators' Development Programme. Based on the content of the "Investigator's Manual", the book has been completely revised for the 2006/7 syllabus. It contains many practical exercises, case studies and multiple choice questions to help students prepare for the NIE. The Workbook takes the trainee investigator through each of the topics relevant to the examination, namely in the areas of Property Offences, Assaults, Drugs, Firearms and Defences, Sexual Offences, Offences Against Children and Evidence. The book also contains useful cross references to the Manual in the answers sections, so students can check their understanding of the content. This Workbook is completely up-to-date for the 2006/7 syllabus with reference to the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 (SOCPA), the updates to the PACE Codes of Practice, the Drugs Act 2005 and the Terrorism Bill.
