** Replaces the Looseleaf Law Publications: New Jersey Motor Vehicle and Traffic Laws and New Jersey Criminal Code, as well as the former Blue360 Media offering of Motor Vehicle and Traffic Laws of New Jersey. This content is now included in the single volume: New Jersey Criminal Law & Motor Vehicle Handbook. **

In this definitive collection of law enforcement-related statutes, the New Jersey Criminal Law and Motor Vehicle Handbook provides complete coverage of crimes and offenses, motor vehicle and traffic laws and regulations (including power vessels), the NJ Court Rules and Rules of Evidence, juvenile provisions, controlled dangerous substances, alcoholic beverages, fish, game and wildlife, and explosives/fireworks. Includes Title 2C (Code of Criminal Justice); Title 39 (Motor Vehicle Law and Traffic Regulation); Title 33 (Intoxicating Liquors and the ABC Code regulations), and selected provisions of the statutes law enforcement professionals use most often in Titles 2A, 2B, 4, 9, 10, 12, 18A, 21, 23, 24, 27, 40, 52 and 53. This book also includes New Jersey Search and Seizure Law, with coverage of Arrests, Confessions, and Privacy Expectations, which provides a clear and comprehensive approach to the study of modern constitutional criminal procedure. It analyzes the classical and current United States Supreme Court and federal circuit court decisions, along with relevant state court decisions that impact the day-to-day duties of law enforcement and criminal justice professionals. Search and Seizure Law removes the guesswork in, and tedious search for, “today’s law.” Where relevant, specific areas of state court departure have been identified. This is where various state courts employ “New Federalism” to rely on their own constitutions to provide state citizens with added protection to their rights and liberties. Search and Seizure Law is an officer’s, attorney’s or law/criminal justice student’s or professor’s valuable reference for the Laws of Arrest, Confessions, and Privacy Expectations
