Blackstone's Police Operational Handbook 2013 is designed specifically to meet the reference needs of officers while out on patrol. Written in a concise and accessible style, it covers a wide range of common offences and clearly explains and interprets the relevant legislation. Using clear and consistent presentation throughout, each chapter offers you a definition of the offence, the points to prove, and a clear system of icons covering police powers and mode of trial. At a glance, you can access everything you need to make a quick, informed decision in a host of everyday policing situations. The seventh edition of this highly regarded and successful Handbook is fully updated to include all recent legislative developments and further changes to the law, including: Police Reform & Social Responsibility Act 2011, the Education Act 2011, the Crime and Security Act 2010, and the Policing and Crime Act 2009. The book also includes information on domestic violence and anti-social behaviour orders, plus further updated guidance in other areas of law from the Home Office/Ministry of Justice Circulars. Whatever your role - police patrol officer, supervisor, student police officer, PCSO or Special Constable - this is an invaluable tool for operational personnel.
