Blackstone's Police Manuals are the leading police reference texts in the UK. In addition to being the only offical study guides for the police promotion examinations in England and Wales, and a recognised text for student police officers, the Manuals have quickly established themselves as the definitive reference sources for all who have involvement with police law and procedure. The Manuals have been written in consultation with police forces across England and Wales, and are endorsed by the National Policing Improvement Agency, for OSPRE Part 1 Promotion Examinations. Blackstone's Police Manual Volume 1 Crime: 2008 covers all aspects of criminal law and procedure from a police officer's perspective. The 2008 edition has been updated to incorporate all recent legislative developments, including the Fraud Act 2007, Emergency Workers (Obstruction) Act 2006, and the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006. Topical subjects covered include controlled drugs and their misuse, assault and racially aggravated offences, state of mind and protection of children, witnesses and jurors.This year, the Manuals have also undergone a full revision in order to make them more accessible, relvant, and focussed. The Manuals are widely used in the professional development of police officers in a variety of roles making them essential reading for anyone with an interest in police and criminal law. Whether you are a serving police officer or police trainer, a practitioner, advisor, or researcher, Blackstone's Police Manuals 2008 are an essential purchase. The other three titles in the series are: Volume 2: Evidence and Procedure 2008, Volume 3: Road Policing 2008, Volume 4: General Police Duties 2008.

Crime Reviews

Review from previous edition
"The new author of this year's version should be complimented for his diligence and persistent attention to detail. He should also be commended for the amount of work that he has applied in the formulation and editing of the new Fraud Act following the removal of Deception related offences as a
result of the introduction of this new legislation. I was very impressed with the content of this edition once again and look forward to seeing it in full production print form. The inclusion of so many Case Law references and scenarios, enthused my interest to want to continue reading. Paul has
made the reading both easy on the eye and in a plain spoken straightforward manner which certainly made me want turn the next page and to continue reading. The essence is whether learning has taken place, the answer quite simply from any student picking up this book is, 'Yes, most definitely."
--Stuart K Fairclough, Metropolitan Police Trainer
"The manuals are an excellent training and reference work. They are pitched at a level which is appropriate for all, from the new student officer to those studying for promotion to higher rank. I would recommend them to every officer wishing to improve or maintain their knowledge of law, police
duties and procedures."
--Paul Murphy, Greater Manchester Police
