CRIMINAL PROCEDURE: LAW and PRACTICE is a favorite among instructors and students for its clear and crisp writing style, engaging pedagogy, and unique ability to cover criminal procedure completely and accurately without bogging students down in irrelevant minutiae. The tenth edition is as relevant and practical as ever for future law enforcement professionals with insightful legal information, current topics, and the most recent Supreme Court rulings. Expanded coverage of such high-profile issues as use of force, stop and frisk, racial profiling, and seizures of cell phone messages accompanies a wealth of case briefs, hypothetical cases, real-world examples, sample police forms, and learning tools.
