The latest criminal justice news

Keep in touch with the newest operational policing practice

Every month we publish our legal Digest which gives you the latest news on matters relating to operational policing practice and criminal justice.

It is an invaluable resource for those responsible for strategic decision-making, operational planning, and police and law enforcement training.

It is particularly informative for students and operational officers, as well as those involved in other areas outside of policing or those who have an interest in policing and criminal justice.

Every edition contains summaries of the key developments in police law and practice, including new legislation, statutory instruments and case law; recently published government reports and initiatives and the latest statistical bulletins.

The November edition includes:

  • a report of an appeal against conviction for an offence for making a threat to kill, contrary to section 16 of the Offences against the Person Act 1861
  • the HMIC report on the efficiency and effectiveness of firearms licensing
  • the follow up inspection of MAPPA
  • HMIC report on police efficiency
  • the terms of reference for the review into deaths and serious incidents in police custody
  • proposed new legislation and statutory instruments.

There are also articles on:
