Publisher Comments:

With CRIMINAL PROCEDURE FOR THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE PROFESSIONAL, Eleventh Edition, you'll have everything you need to develop a comprehensive understanding of the legal rights, duties, and liabilities of criminal justice professionals. This timely book presents a uniquely practical, real-life approach to criminal procedure, which makes it an ideal reference book as you begin your career. Using clear and concise statements of criminal procedure law and understandable explanations of the reasoning behind the law, authors John N. Ferdico, Henry F. Fradella, and Christopher Totten clarify potentially confusing and obscure legal matters. Additionally, they reduce the complexity of criminal procedure law into simple, straightforward guidelines and recommendations, illustrated with interesting examples of actual cases.
