Salhany's Police Manual of Arrest, Seizure & Interrogation provides police officers with an up-to-date, easily accessible, and accurate recitation of the law in these vital areas of criminal justice – arrest, search & seizure, and interrogating suspects and interviewing witnesses.

  • Cole (2012), 290 C.C.C. (3d) 247 (S.C.C.) - a warrantless search of a teacher's computer contents was unreasonable - the police should have sought a search warrant;

  • Quesnelle 2014 SCC 46 - holding that Crown has no duty to disclose police occurrence reports prepared in the investigation of previous incidents involving a complainant or witness and not the offence being prosecuted as part of the Crown disclosure process;
  • Telus, 2013 SCC 16 - prohibiting use of general warrant in circumstances where police should have applied for wiretap authorization.
