Review:

"For an in-depth understanding of the most important and most relevant decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court, agencies and officers can use the book Briefs of Leading Cases in Law Enforcement (Anderson Publishing/Elsevier). This book addresses important cases in ways officers can understand how court decisions affect their actions. Each Supreme Court case is broken down into the facts as they might be seen by an officer, the issue involved in the case, the Supreme Court ruling, and what that ruling means for police officer actions. Legal Guide for Police provides a somewhat broader understanding of laws and court decisions. Although the cases covered are not as in-depth as the Briefs [of Leading Cases in Law] book, Legal Guide contains plenty of discussion to aid officers in understanding the law. This book also includes other court decisions besides those of the U.S. Supreme Court.  The authors of both of these books not only have a strong legal background, one also has experience as an LEO. Therefore, legal jargon that's often contained in cases is recast in language that can both be understood by officers and applied in everyday work. The books can build a strong understanding of the law and can also serve as a wonderful study tool for promotion tests. The books are updated approximately every two years to ensure officers have the most up-to-date information on the laws that affect them. Many law enforcement agencies already use one or both of these books in promotional exams and training. In addition, the authors take feedback from agencies and officers seriously when updating both books."--LawOfficer.com
