Blackstone's Handbook for the Special Constabulary is a timely and comprehensive guide to the role and work of this unique group within the police force.

Drawing on the new National Strategy for the Special Constabulary, it provides an invaluable, practical resource for all Special Constables, from new recruits to seasoned officers or even those who simply want to find out more about the role. It is designed as a handy reference tool for use on the job, whilst also providing a comprehensive context to policing and the criminal justice system.

The Handbook covers the police function of a Special Constable in chronological order, beginning with training and development, the law, police powers, and advice on professional standards. The daily encounters and experiences of a Special are explored, with expert guidance on the range of duties performed, such as Stop, Search and Entry, managing people and incidents, policing domestic violence, and working within Neighbourhood Policing Teams.

There is clear operational advice on crime scene management, including preserving physical evidence, types of forensic evidence, and the role of the First Officer Attending.

This approach is supported by a range of practical tools for the reader, such as boxed summaries, case studies, discussion points, flow-charts and checklists.
