Often lost in the focus on the rights of criminal suspects is the notion that law enforcement officers themselves possess rights. Those rights are often poorly understood and sporadically applied. This book is a comprehensive review of the rights of law enforcement officers. The book is designed for the layperson, yet contains the supporting case law and statutory citations necessary to make it a reference tool for attorneys. This sixth edition of The Rights of Law Enforcement Officers contains numerous changes from previous versions of the book, in areas ranging from free speech, to the Garrity and Weingarten rules, to a discussion of major shifts in the law in areas such as discrimination. It also includes references to hundreds of new cases decided in the last five years.

I obtained the first to Third Editions since 1994. I used this guide on both sides of the "adversarial table". I recommend this for the officers, especially the police administrators, and for the lawyers representing police, fire, EMS, clients.
This book is a shotgun look at cases across the nation referencing both union and non-union case determinations of disciplinary standards. Each chapter provides the legal case history reference for legal quotations of various courts.
If you are a governmental board, city council, county commission, or other police regulatory body, get this book, to guide the officers in blue. Every police union representative should have this next to his field Bible. "Man possess the capacity of both GOOD and EVIL!" People in general, are a contention in every day life. You know this.

A must have in every patrolmans tool bag. Explains your constitutional rights in the context of a law enforcement or firefighter employee. Easy to read and well organized. Explains case law related to labor issues. It is worth the $20 bucks and you can deduct it from your taxes.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
