Principles of criminal procedure are presented chronologically as they apply to practices and procedures on the street, at the police station, and in the courts. Carefully edited cases are combined with the text narrative (about 55 percent text, 45 percent cases). The theme of balancing the interest in obtaining the correct result in individual cases and the interest in fairness obtained by due process of law lends focus to the text and cases. Decision Points illustrate practical applications of procedural law principles.
