A Dictionary of Law Enforcement is the only dictionary available
with a primary focus on UK law enforcement terms. Succinct and
practical in its approach, it contains over 3,400 entries covering
ever aspect of this diverse field, including terms related to law,
pathology, forensic medicine, accountancy, insurance, shipping,
commerce and trade, criminology, and psychology. Entries are
supported by a wealth of practical information, including (where
appropriate) citations and references to statutes and legislation.
In addition to the definitions, the dictionary also contains five
useful appendices: Abbreviations and Acronyms, Recordable Offences,
Disclosure Code, Disclosure Guidelines and Disclosure Protocol.
Written by two former police officers, both now lecturers in law
and criminal investigation, the dictionary fills a significant gap
in the law market and will be invaluable to police officers and
trainee officers, students and lecturers of criminology, criminal
justice, and police studies, and other professionals needing clear
definitions of law enforcement terms.
