Blackstone's Police Manuals 2017, endorsed by the College of Policing, are the only official study guides for the NPPF Step Two Legal Examination (formerly OSPRE(R) 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 2017 syllabus.
Blackstone's Police Manual Volume 1: Crime 2017 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 2017 edition has been updated to incorporate all recent legislative developments and case law, including coverage of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 and the Criminal Procedure Rules 2015, as well as revised material covering State of Mind and Criminal Conduct, and a revised chapter on Theft and Related Offences. Also available in the series are: Volume 2: Evidence and Procedure 2017, Volume 3: Road Policing 2017, and Volume 4: General Police Duties 2017.
