Review:

"I believe that the organization and the non-legalese format makes this book reader friendly. The student finds practical applications more interesting and helpful. The author lists problems at the end of the chapters to help reinforce the material. This is an excellent approach." — Robert P. Griffiths, Esq., Suffolk County Community College, Seldon, NY

From the Back Cover:

The eighth edition of Criminal Law for Police Officers presents the historical concepts fundamental to understanding criminal law. The book is written in a non-legalese format, which makes it very student friendly. Areas covered include jurisdiction, matters of responsibility and accountability, and general principles about the criminal act.
