From the PublisherI have used this textbook for over 20 years in our Constitutional Law course at Stanly Community College because it makes teaching easy. It is an excellent collection of short briefs of U.S. Supreme Court cases for law enforcement. Everything the seated and online students need to know about a case is in one or two pages. For example, Tennessee v. Garner is one and a half pages in the text. A typical case brief within the textbook, includes the facts of the case, issue, holding, legal reasoning, and case significance. Additionally, the authors include up-to-date cases and topics. For example, there is a new chapter on police-dog searches and a new chapter on computer crimes and cellphones as they relate to law enforcement. I endorse this textbook because as a former Charlotte, NC Police Officer with nine years of street experience, I know the legal exposure law enforcement officers face daily on the street.

Briefs of Leading Cases in Law Enforcement is an excellent text for student and instructor alike. I have found the case summaries to be accurate, concise, and a wonderful resource.

Briefs in Leading Cases in Law Enforcement breaks down each Supreme Court case in sections; capsule, facts, issue, Supreme Court Decision, reason and case significance. This supplemental text is a great compliment to any book dealing with criminal courts and procedure. This makes a fantastic teaching tool for faculty, and more important, very understandable for students.

This text includes recent cases such as Riley v CA involving cell phone and computer searchers, while emphasizing the facts in all court decisions. Studying the facts prepares students to work in the field as they are able to evaluate facts in any situation, make informed decisions, and defend the actions they take.
