4.0 out of 5 stars Law Enforcement Basic Session Training November 27, 2000
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best CJ book! January 7, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars The book you will use for years. March 12, 2006
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.

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.
