Blackstone's Police Manuals 2016, endorsed by the College of Policing, are the only official study guides for the NPPF Step Two Legal Examination (formerly OSPRERG Part I). Straightforward and accessible, Blackstone's Police Manuals are the only resource used by question writers when preparing a NPPF Step Two Legal Examination and each of the four volumes forms part of the only comprehensive version of the 2016 syllabus.
Blackstone's Police Manual Volume 1: Crime 2016 covers areas including Homicide, Sexual Offences, Fraud, State of Mind, and Non-Fatal Offences Against the Person. For complex or commonly misunderstood areas, there are handy Keynote boxes, which point to relevant case law or provide an example of how material is used in a practical sense, helping you to establish the connections between legislation and police procedure. The 2016 edition has been updated to incorporate all recent legislative developments and case law, including coverage of the Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015, the Serious Crime Act 2015, the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 and the Criminal Procedure Rules 2015, and a revised chapter on Control of Sex Offenders.
Also available in the series are: Volume 2: Evidence and Procedure 2016, Volume 3: Road Policing 2016, and Volume 4: General Police Duties 2016.
