Police: Law and Practice is the first standalone text on police law in New Zealand.

Within the service of the police a range of legal issues can arise, from internal employment and disciplinary actions to external criminal and civil proceedings around arrest, search and surveillance and use of force.

Police: Law and Practice pulls together all topics relating to the New Zealand Police, including a comprehensive statement of the law governing the Police; detailed analysis of Police powers of search, and arrest and questioning; their investigative powers and function; the conduct and prosecution of offences; and remedies available for acting in excess of powers.

Police: Law and Practice is the definitive text for lawyers acting for and against the police, the police themselves, and criminal procedure and justice students.
