Blackstone's Police Q&a: Crime 2014

John Watson

Blackstone's Police Q&As 2014 are essential revision tools for all police officers sitting the OSPRE Part 1 promotion examinations. Written in partnership with the best-selling Blackstone's Police Manuals, the only study guides endorsed by the College of Policing, the Q&As' experienced author team follow subjects in the same sequence as the Manuals, providing the most authoritative means of self-testing outside of the Promotion Examinations.

Blackstone's Police Q&A: Crime 2014 contains hundreds of multiple-choice questions designed to reinforce knowledge and understanding of the Crime Manual. Matching the format of the promotion examinations, each Question has a detailed and comprehensive Answer that highlights not only the correct response, but also the reasoning behind the incorrect responses, allowing candidates to highlight any gaps or weaknesses in their knowledge. Full cross-references to the relevant Manual paragraphs and Keynotes support more effective studying and a question checklist helps candidates track their progress.

The 2014 editions of this popular series contain important updates, reflecting changes to the 2014 versions of the Blackstone's Police Manuals. This new edition on Crime includes new questions on the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012, the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 1964, the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008, and the Sexual Offences Act 2003.

Other titles in the series are: Evidence and Procedure Q&A 2014, Road Policing Q&A 2014, and General Police Duties Q&A 2014.
