Details and specs


The Investigator's Legal Handbook, Second Edition is a comprehensive yet easy-to-understand guide to the law, both pre- and post-charge, for all those involved in Canadian law enforcement. The book is full of easy-to-find, concrete, and practical answers to the legal problems faced every day by criminal and regulatory investigators, but still maintains a level of detail that qualifies it as a one-stop reference source. Illustrations, comprehensive checklists, and short question-and-answer dialogues between investigators and prosecutors appear throughout the text. The focus is on legal principles of good investigative practice that will stand the test of time and maximize positive outcomes at all stages of a case.

The second edition includes eight years worth of case law and legislative updates, as well as a particular focus on the legal aspects of how the growth of online internet information communication technology is revolutionizing the ways cases are investigated, offences are committed, and investigators can find and understand the law by themselves. The text is a must-have for legal practitioners who want to gain in-depth knowledge on aspects like effective working relationships, finding and interpreting the law, the importance of note-taking, protection of informers, and more.
