The extent of powers granted to police and other investigative agencies have changed in line with new technologies and new types of crime – this single volume combines criminal law and administrative law materials to provide an encyclopaedic outline of the powers and responsibilities of Police and other investigative agencies, across Australian jurisdictions.
In recent years various Investigative Agencies such as ASIO have had their powers expanded, whether to combat perceived threats to society, or to take account of changing technologies. This volume will provide an outline of the powers and responsibilities of Police and Investigative agencies while undertaking the investigation of a crime, as well as the limitations on these powers.
The material in Subtitle 11.1 covers powers in relation to arrest, questioning, the investigation of persons and places, and electronic surveillance.
Subtitle 11.2 explains the essential attributes and functions of a selection of independent investigative agencies, and then looks in detail at the Australian Crime Commission (ACC); the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC); the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC); the Crime and Misconduct Commission (CMC); the New South Wales Crime Commission (NSWCC); and ASIO.
Subtitle 2.8 examines the manner in which Royal Commissions and Boards of Inquiry are established and acquire information; the limits on the powers of governments to appoint them; the statutory provisions governing their appointment and their procedure once appointed.
