Blackstone's Police Investigators' Workbook by Paul Connor
The Blackstone's Police Investigators' Workbook 2009 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 2009 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 Evidence, Property Offences, Assaults, Drugs, Firearms & Defences, and Sexual Offences. 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 2009 syllabus with reference to all recent legislative changes, including the Fraud Act 2006, the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007, the Police and Justice Act 2006, the Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006 and the revised PACE Codes 2008.
