Blackstone's Police Manuals are the leading police reference texts in the UK. In addition to being the only official 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 are involved 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 2: Evidence and Procedure: 2010 covers all aspects of evidence law and procedure from a police officer's perspective. It has been fully revised and updated for 2010 with new case law and legislation, including the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008, the Serious Crime Act 2007, the Criminal Evidence (Witness Anonymity) Act 2008, and updated PACE Codes of Practice 1984. The Manuals continue to be the most accessible, relevant, and focussed revision materials for Promotion Examinations.
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 2010 are an essential purchase.
