Covert Policing: Law and Practice is a comprehensive review of the law governing covert policing activities, undertaken by law enforcement and other public authorities. It sets out the framework within which covert policing operations should be planned and managed to enable practitioners working for either the defence or prosecution to critically consider the legality and propriety of evidence obtained in cases where covert policing resources have been deployed, including applications for Public Interest Immunity.

  • Provides a step by step guide to RIPA 2000, clearly broken down into separate chapters for each main aspect of the legislation
  • Clearly explains the interpretation of provisions as set out by the courts and identifies the key principles emanating from cases
  • Highlights the particular vulnerabilities and anomalies of surveillance and covert policing work to assist practitioners in developing and testing interpretative arguments
