Authored by Larry E. Holtz, this 3 volume publication is a comprehensive and convenient New Jersey criminal justice reference for law enforcement professionals, attorneys, and students alike. In this edition, multiple laws have changed, including:
-- Lawful use of deadly force found for officer who arrived late at an ongoing police action. 
-- New Jersey does not follow Illinois v. McArthur, which allows an officer to enter a home to secure it       .while awaiting a search warrant.
-- The public has a First Amendment right to photograph, film, or record police officers conducting their ..official duties in public places. 


The New Jersey Law Enforcement Handbook is the definitive criminal justice reference for New Jersey 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 comprehensive 3-volume set, the classical and current United States and New Jersey court decisions are presented and explored in a distinctive Question – Answer – Rationale format, 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 the New Jersey courts, often referred to as “New Federalism.” This is your one-stop reference for the Laws of Arrest, Search and Seizure, Confession Law, Eyewitness Identification, judicial case interpretations of the Criminal Justice Code (Title 2C), and the only source for a fully annotated text of all the NJ Attorney General Guidelines, Policies and Directives.
