Blackstone's Police Manuals, available in four volumes, are the leading police reference texts in the UK. Written in consultation with police forces across England and Wales, the Manuals are the only study guides endorsed by the College of Policing for OSPRE Part 1 Promotion Examinations.
Blackstone's Police Manual Volume 3: Road Policing 2014, in line with the new OSPRE syllabus, covers all the relevant subject areas for candidates, including Accidents and Collisions, Drink, Drugs and Driving, Insurance, and Classifications and Concepts. Straightforward and accessible, each chapter offers a logical progression through the material and is extensively cross-referenced to provide a deeper understanding and more complete perspective of police duties. For complex or commonly misunderstood areas, there are handy Keynote boxes, which point to relevant case law or provide an example of how material is used in a practical sense, helping candidates to assimilate the information better and establish the connections between legislation and police procedure. The 2014 edition has been updated to include coverage of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 and the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012.
Blackstone's Police Manuals continue to be the most accessible, relevant, and focused revision materials for Promotion Examinations. Widely used by trainers as well as police officers going for promotion, their breadth and scope also make them an invaluable resource for anyone involved in police and criminal law.
Also available in the series are: Volume 1: Crime 2014, Volume 2: Evidence and Procedure 2014, and Volume 4: General Police Duties 2014. Blackstone's Police Manuals are also available as an online service offering fast desktop access to the complete text of the four Manuals.
