Summary

Legal Guide for Police: Constitutional Issues, 11th Edition, is a valuable tool for criminal justice students and law enforcement professionals, bringing them up-to-date with developments in the law of arrest, search and seizure, police authority to detain, questioning suspects and pretrial identification procedures, police power and its limitations, and civil liability of police officers and agencies. Including specific case examples, this revised edition provides the most current information for students and law enforcement professionals needing to develop a modern understanding of the law.

Authors Walker and Hemmens have included introductory and summary chapters to aid readers in understanding the context, importance, and applicability of the case law. A new chapter covers warrantless searches involving cell phones and other technology, as well as vehicles. All chapters have been updated to reflect U.S. Supreme Court decisions up to and including the 2018 term of court. Important cases added to this edition include: Riley v. California (2014), Florida v. Jarines (2013), Birchfield v. North Dakota (2016), Heien v. North Carolina (2014), and Byrd v. United States (2018). A helpful Appendix contains the Bill of Rights and the Fourteenth Amendment, and a Table of Cases lists every case referenced in the text.
