Blackstone's Police Manuals, endorsed by the College of Policing, are the only official study guides for the NPPF Step Two Legal Examination (formerly OSPRE® Part I).
Straightforward and accessible, Blackstone's Police Manuals offer you the only comprehensive version of the 2018 syllabus and they are the only resource used by question writers when preparing a NPPF Step Two Legal Examination. The four volumes of Crime, Evidence and Procedure, Road Policing, and General Police Duties cover all aspects of criminal law and procedure, with key parts of legislation reproduced for your reference and with each chapter professionally checked and reviewed by the College of Policing. Complex or commonly misunderstood areas feature handy Keynote boxes, which point to relevant case law or provide an example of how material is used in a practical sense, helping you to establish the connections between legislation and police procedure. The 2018 editions have been updated to incorporate all recent legislative developments and case law, including coverage of the Policing and Crime Act 2017 and its impact on pre-charge bail, fully revised PACE Codes C and D, revised content on Human Rights, and the Psychoactive Substances Act 2016.
Blackstone's Police Manuals are also available as part of our online Blackstone's Police Manuals and Q&As service: http://www.blackstonespolice.com
