As the Training Program Assistant at the Calcasieu Parish Regional Law Enforcement Training Academy, I would like to express that this textbook is a wonderful addition to our facility during the cadet's fifty-two hour Criminal Procedure block of instruction. The attending cadet's have considered these textbooks as their bestfriend during their basic training sessions and have given high reviews. At this time we are currently looking into the possible purchase of the fourth or fifth edition of this textbook for our future basic sessions.

This is the book that I go to when people ask me about criminal law procedure. The text is comprehensive from investigation and examination to execution of sentencing. If your CJ curriculum uses this book and you are debating on whether to buy it, buy it. I have an earlier version and although it may be dated, it would be in case law only. Because of the breadth of information compiled in this text, I used this book alone for a ton of my classes.

Of all the criminal justice books I've read -and believe me, there have been more than I'd like to admit- this has gotta be one of the more entertaining, easy to follow, clear & concise ones! I'm actually disappointed that I had rented it & had to return it....would've loved to have kept it!

I purchased this book in lue of the edition that was currently being used in my class in the middle of the semester. It served me well. I have an A average in the course! It was delivered in a quick and timely fashion. And the rating of the books condition was very accurate. It was in great shape for a used book and the price was right in line with a very strained budget. I will definately order from this vendor again. In short I was super pleased witht the overall transaction. This is the explination for the 5 star rating I have given this purchase choice. The alternative to this purchase was the newest edition of this book at a selling price of $175 in the campus book store. I got my great book in great condition for about $13 bucks after shipping! So I guess you can be the judge...Happy Shopping!!!

I recommend this text book to all students and (or) individuals that have a high interest in Law Enforcement or any where in the Criminal Justice system. Amazon sold it at an unbeatable price and I initially received it earlier than I expected.

This was an interesting but very tough class. The distinction between each law is a very fine line and this is a great book to teach you that with the right instructor.
