Police Station Skills Kit: Accreditation Manual : Accreditation Manual and Practical Reference
The third edition of Police Station Skills for Legal Advisers is an essential two-part reference for those engaging in active defence in the police station. It provides a wealth of information for all legal advisers, whether seeking accreditation or already accredited. Written in a clear, practical fashion, this popular kit covers all you need to successfully defend a client. This new edition takes account of the many fundamental changes that have occurred since the second edition - in the law, police investigation and the detention and questioning of individuals in police stations. The kit consists of the Accreditation Manual and the Practical Reference, both of which are available separately. The Accreditation Manual explains in detail the defender role and how the police investigate. It introduces new and established practitioner tools and presents each stage of skilled, active defence from the initial request to attend the police station. The Practical Reference spells out objectives for each stage of defending and provides checklists to help achieve each one, together with examples of the questions that will need to be asked.
