Blackstone's Police Manual Summary

Blackstone's Police Manual: v. 1: Crime by Paul Connor

Blackstone's Police Manuals, available in four volumes, are the leading police reference texts in the UK. Written in consultation with police forces across England and Wales, the Manuals are the only study guides endorsed by the National Policing Improvement Agency for OSPRE Part 1 Promotion Examinations. Blackstone's Police Manual Volume 1: Crime 2013, in line with the new OSPRE syllabus, covers all the relevant subject areas for candidates, including Homicide, Sexual Offences, Fraud, State of Mind, and Non-Fatal Offences Against the Person. Straightforward and accessible, each chapter offers a logical progression through the material and is extensively cross-referenced to provide a deeper understanding and more complete perspective of police duties. For complex or commonly misunderstood areas, there are handy Keynote boxes, which point to relevant case law or provide an example of how material is used in a practical sense, helping candidates to assimilate the information better and establish the connections between legislation and police procedure. The 2013 edition has been updated to incorporate all recent legislative developments and case law, including coverage of the Coroners and Justice Act 2009, the Policing and Crime Act 2009, and the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007. The 2013 edition also contains a revised chapter on Theft and Related Offences. Blackstone's Police Manuals continue to be the most accessible, relevant, and focused revision materials for Promotion Examinations. Widely used by trainers as well as police officers going for promotion, their breadth and scope also make them an invaluable resource for anyone involved in police and criminal law. Also available in the series are: Volume 2: Evidence and Procedure 2013, Volume 3: Road Policing 2013, and Volume 4: General Police Duties 2013. Blackstone's Police Manuals are also available as an online service offering fast desktop access to the complete text of the four Manuals.
