More About This Textbook


Now in its Third Edition, Criminal Procedures: The Police retains its comprehensive, student-friendly approach. This engaging treatment of criminal procedures depicts the enormous variety within criminal justice systems, placing a deliberate focus on the real-world context of the subject matter.

This casebook continues to offer a solid, comprehensive treatment of criminal procedures. With an accessible style it:

• surveys the constitutional, statutory, and administrative doctrines and practices that shape how the police interact with citizens and investigate crimes
• examines the procedures and policies of both federal and state systems , assumptions and judgments underlying each, and how these systems interrelate and sometimes compete with one another
• looks at sources of law and doctrine from multiple institutions, including U.S. Supreme Court cases, state high court cases, statutes, rules of procedure, and police and prosecutorial policies
• discusses the influence of politics within various institutions of law enforcement
• addresses the role of public pressure on policing and procedure with regard to terrorism, drug trafficking, domestic abuse, and the treatment of crime victims
• provides interdisciplinary materials that explore the impact of criminal procedures on law enforcers, lawyers, courts, communities, defendants, and victims
examines issues of race and justice in criminal procedures

The authors introduce a variety of new information to the Third Edition:

• a selection of new state cases — all decided in 2000 or later — to keep the focus on current application of doctrine
• a strengthened emphasis on professional responsibility issues
coverage of new U.S. Department of Justice policies on charging corporations
• discussions on the impact of "Global War on Terror" policies on wiretapping and searches in ordinary criminal prosecution
