The District of Columbia Criminal Law and Motor Vehicle Manual has been created and uniquely designed for the District’s law enforcement and criminal justice professionals, including attorneys, criminal justice students and instructors, who will find the manual to be an invaluable resource. In this definitive collection of law enforcement and criminal-justice related statutes, the DC Manual provides comprehensive coverage of District of Columbia’s Criminal Offenses and Penalties (Title 22); Criminal Procedure (Title 23); Motor Vehicle and Traffic Laws and Regulations (Titles 18 and 50); Public Space and Safety (Title 24); Alcoholic Beverages (Title 25); Controlled Substances (Title 48); DC Superior Court Rules; DC Municipal Regulations; Police and Firefighters (Title 5); Juvenile and Family proceedings (Titles 2 and 16); and hundreds of other selected provisions of related statutes law enforcement officers, attorneys, and criminal justice professionals use most often. This publication also includes a listing of applicable sections affected by legislation during the latest session, along with an extensive index and table of contents for quick access to each area of the law.

       The newest Blue360° Media Edition significantly enhances an officer’s constitutional application of the law with the addition of a valuable presentation of  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.” 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.
