Overview

Long one of the most widely respected texts in its field, Constitutional Law examines those provisions that govern the day-to-day work of criminal justice personnel while protecting the rights of whom they serve. Many professionals depend on some knowledge of the law to properly do their job and avoid civil liability charges. However, the Constitution is complex and often difficult to decipher. This book dispels any such difficulty using a modular approach and reader-friendly prose to first breakdown the major principles of constitutional argument, and then explain how they are commonly applied in specific scenarios. Special attention is paid to the way individual rights are safeguarded by the Fourth and Fifth Amendments, the limits on police authority, and the requirements of Due Process.
