Evidential Aspects of Law Enforcement will assist law enforcement officers with gaining a clear understanding of the legal principles involved in the gathering of evidence, whether on crime scenes or during further investigations.
A successful prosecution depends on the value of the evidence gathered from the moment that the crime was reported. Evidential Aspects of Law Enforcement addresses the law of evidence and aspects of the law of criminal procedure that relate to the law of evidence. The book also explains the importance of effecting an arrest to facilitate the gathering of evidence from a suspect (such as fingerprints and DNA), and how the conduct of the enforcement officer may affect investigations.
Evidential Aspects of Law Enforcement explains technical legal terms in a straightforward and practical way, and contains the information that all law enforcement officers require to perform their duties effectively.
