This book equips the reader with the essentials for advising on the full range of procedures, strategies and tactics available. It provides thorough procedural advice and step-by-step guidance from pre-issue considerations through to jury trial and appeal. There is detailed guidance on the most common torts - false imprisonment, malicious prosecution and misfeasance - and clear analysis of developing causes of actions against the police such as negligence, privacy, discrimination and claims under the Human Rights Act. It outlines other available remedies such as judicial review and inquests, and includes a unique guide to obtaining compensation for wrongful convictions from the Home Office.
Since the last edition of this book the legal background to the field of police misconduct has transformed. The fourth edition has been substantially rewritten and expanded to include a major analysis of developments such as the Independent Police Complaints Commission, new police discipline systems, constitutional changes to the organisation of the police and ever-widening police powers.
