Blackstone's Police Manuals, available in four volumes, are the leading police reference texts in the UK. Written in consultation with police forces across England and Wales, the Manuals are the only study guides endorsed by the National Policing Improvement Agency for OSPRE Part 1 Promotion Examinations.
Blackstone's Police Manual Volume 1: Crime 2012, in line with the new OSPRE syllabus, covers all the relevant subject areas for candidates, including Homicide, Sexual Offences, Fraud, State of Mind, and Offences Against the Person. Straightforward and accessible, each chapter offers a logical progression through the material and is extensively cross-referenced to provide a deeper understanding and more complete perspective of police duties. For complex or commonly misunderstood areas, there are handy Keynote boxes, which point to relevant case law or provide an example of how material is used in a practical sense, helping candidates to assimilate the information better and establish the connections between legislation and police procedure. The 2012 edition has been updated to incorporate all recent legislative developments and case law, including coverage of the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 and the Policing and Crime Act 2009. The 2012 edition also contains revised chapters on Misuse of Drugs and Non-Fatal Offences Against the Person.
Blackstone's Police Manuals continue to be the most accessible, relevant, and focused revision materials for Promotion Examinations. Widely used by trainers as well as police officers going for promotion, their breadth and scope also make them an invaluable resource for anyone involved in police and criminal law.
Also available in the series are: Volume 2: Evidence and Procedure 2012, Volume 3: Road Policing 2012, and Volume 4: General Police Duties 2012. Blackstone's Police Manuals are also available as an online service offering fast desktop access to the complete text of the four Manuals.

Review from previous edition: "A clearly written, instructive interpretation of the law." --Sally Ramage 06/01/2011
"If you study for Police promotion you really must have these manuals." --Rob Jerrard, The City of London Police Pensioners' Newsletter August 2010
"What these manuals achieve is the fulfilment of the police mission...We would say that these manuals are worth a much wider readership and do cover the needs of serving police officers, trainer, special constables, student law practitioners, advisors and researchers and should be a point of call for any interested in a police career. What is particularly attractive about these manuals is the fine balance between 'the law', cases and the detailed statutory provisions which are of such significance in today's world of policing." --Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers
