Never before have greater—or more conflicting— demands been placed on those who serve, as well as those who train in law enforcement. The recent fiscal crises, coupled with an increased need for homeland security, have seriously complicated how police officers perform their duties, and made the consequences for errors in police performance more severe for both the officers involved and their superiors. Factor in the danger and stress police officers like you face in your daily work, and your decisions in even the most common of situations become a challenge. Regardless of the adversity you face, however, you are still required to think quickly, respond appropriately, and know the law.
The Pocket Manual highlights basic rules for quick reference and offers examples showing how rules are applied and concise guidance based on U.S. Supreme Court rulings on constitutional law issues and other legal developments, covering arrest, search, surveillance, and other routine, as well as sensitive, areas of law enforcement.
The 2018 Edition of the Manual reflects:
The U.S. Supreme Court’s warning: Use of reasonable force may still give rise to an excessive force claim if the entry into the premises was unreasonable.
States’ continuing struggle with the implied consent theory for blood draws on suspected drunk drivers, with two state high courts reaching differing conclusions.
Whether proper consent to enter a dwelling is invalidated by a pretext for being on the premises
Police authority to run a background check on vehicle passengers without reasonable suspicion
Robert E. Wilhelm is a Legal Editor of Bloomberg BNA’s Criminal Law Reporter and White Collar Crime Report.
With more than 100 practical examples drawn from the facts of leading cases, The Law Officer’s Pocket Manual provides specific guidance on how to act on the spot in a wide variety of situations. Written in plain English, the Pocket Manual highlights basic rules for quick reference and offers examples showing how rules are applied.
“I’ve been using The Law Officer’s Pocket Manual since the beginning of my career.... The breadth of information in this handy little manual is astounding … like having an expert tutor in contemporary criminal justice and Jurisprudence. No police officer should be without this guide.”
New Shoreham Police Department, Block Island, RI
“I made great use of The Law Officer's Pocket Manual while serving as a police officer. Now that I'm “retired” and teaching high school Criminal Justice, I find the same resource that served me so well in my police duties helping me to teach my high school students. The manual is concise and well written, in terms that students can easily comprehend. The Law Officer's Pocket Manual is a valuable resource for my classroom.”
