Criminal Law, Civil Liability and Personnel Law . . .
Key Issues for the Law Enforcement Professional

As a professional engaged in law enforcement, you know the importance of keeping up-to-date on the rapidly changing criminal and civil liability law. Each year, thousands of new decisions from the federal and state courts impact on the law of arrest, search and seizure, interrogation, trial procedures, civil liability and personnel law. It is literally a full-time job to keep up with the twists and turns of these decisions. Yet failure to do so can all too often lead to tragic consequences ranging from suppression of evidence and freeing of offenders to judgments for civil liability and disciplinary action.

The Dilemma . . . The Law Is Constantly Changing

You can't possibly read all the court decisions to keep yourself up-to-date. A cost-effective way of addressing this dilemma is having the most important of these decisions summarized for you and your department and presented in an easy-to-understand format that can be readily adapted to your training needs. Digesting cases from the United States Supreme Court, the federal courts of appeal and district courts, and the courts of all 50 states, the Law Enforcement Legal Review solves this dilemma.
