CRIMINAL PROCEDURE has been completely revised to incorporate the latest changes in procedural laws. Examples of various state laws are included throughout the text. It is written in an easy-to-understand manner to facilitate student comprehension. Designed to help students and officers understand how activities in both law enforcement and corrections interface with court proceedings, the text demystifies the judicial process and helps the reader understand the importance of collecting evidence and documenting facts that may not appear relevant to the crime being investigated. The text starts by reviewing the basics, with minimal emphasis on history and evidence. Thereafter, the text is organized chronologically and thoroughly covers the roles of the police, court, and corrections. Special issues, such as civil suits, Children Protective Services, and forfeiture proceedings, are introduced due to their increasing impact on law enforcement.
