The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 allows some 23 Government and non-Government public sector bodies to use covert surveillance as part of a criminal investigation, in the interests of public health, public safety, or to protect the economic wellbeing of the UK. This legislation has had a huge impact on criminal and human rights lawyers, legal professionals working in local or central Government and public sector bodies such as the Police and Customs and Excise. "Surveillance Law" is a unique title which deals specifically with this important Act and how it fits with existing legislation, including detailed narrative and commentary on how this legislation is being dealt with in cases coming before the courts. Containing relevant case law and legislation, this book also includes the full text of the Act itself, the accompanying Codes of Practice and other relevant legislative extracts.
