The 2021 edition of the  Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Handbook, has been fully updated by renowned author, Larry E. Holtz, to include contemporary criminal procedure and important cases impacting search & seizure and confession laws. Orders Include a fully searchable eBook and mobile application.

 
What's new in this edition? Full updates including:
  • Commonwealth v. Copenhaver. Operating a vehicle with an expired registration sticker is not a “breach of the peace” …
  • Commonwealth v. Johnson.  Where law enforcement seeks to search a person’s cell phone based on the person’s mere proximity to illegal contraband, some link sufficient to connect the two must be provided in the affidavit of probable cause.
  • Commonwealth v. Cost. The retention by the police of defendant’s identification card to conduct a warrant check escalated the police-citizen encounter into an investigative detention.

The Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Handbook is the definitive criminal justice reference for Pennsylvania law enforcement officials, attorneys practicing criminal law, and criminal justice teachers and students. Author and criminal procedure expert Larry E. Holtz, Esq., presents a new and innovative approach to the study of modern constitutional criminal procedure. In this manual, the classical and current United States and Pennsylvania court decisions are presented and explored in a distinctive Question – Answer – Rationaleformat, augmented with case Notes, through which Mr. Holtz removes the guesswork in, and tedious search for, “today’s law.” Also presented are all areas of departure by thePennsylvania courts, often referred to as “New Federalism.” The publication includes a detailed explanation of Search & Seizure law, clearly presenting the factors that determine whether an officer’s search or seizure will be considered “reasonable.”, and an extensive presentation of the Pennsylvania Criminal Law of Evidence.

The eBook versions of this title feature links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options. Moreover, our included CD-ROM gives you the expanded capability of electronic search and copy-and-paste into your documents.

The Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Handbook is updated annually to provide this State’s criminal justice professionals with the most up-to-date information possible. Be sure to order your copy today!
