Police Powers and Procedures is a core learning resource designed to help students gain an understanding of the sources of police powers and the procedures used to apply them in the real-life world of law enforcement.

This text provides them with the most current case and statute law — including legislation that has emerged in the wake of September 11th — that defines and shapes Canadian policing practices. An appendix contains the Police Services Act as well as Regulation 3/99, offering ready access to two key sources of police empowerment. In a clearly written, well-structured narrative, the authors present the full complement of themes needed to support classroom learning and to prepare students for their on-the-job policing experience.

Thematic coverage is more inclusive than in any other text currently available. Included, for example, are: accountability and the limits of police power, use of force and officer safety, arrest powers, search and seizure, and discretion and anti-terrorism legislation. The narrative is accompanied by an ample program of learning and assessment activities that allow students to build up their understandings and competencies as they proceed through the textbook and course. The strengths and features of Police Powers and Procedures ensure that students will gain a solid foundation on basic police powers in Canada.
