Blackstone's Police Q&As 2016 are the essential revision tool for all police officers sitting the NPPF Step Two Legal Examination (formerly OSPRE(R) Part I). Written in partnership with the best-selling Blackstone's Police Manuals, the only study guides endorsed by the College of Policing, the Q&As' experienced author team follow subjects in the same sequence as the Manuals, providing the most authoritative means of self-testing outside of the promotion examinations. Blackstone's Police Q&A: General Police Duties 2017 contains hundreds of multiple-choice questions designed to reinforce knowledge and understanding of the General Police Duties Manual. Matching the only format of questions you will see in an NPPF Step Two Legal Examination, each question has a detailed and comprehensive answer that highlights not only the correct response, but also the reasoning behind the incorrect responses, allowing candidates to highlight any gaps or weaknesses in their knowledge. Full cross-references to the relevant Manual paragraphs and Keynotes encourage more effective studying, while a question checklist helps you track your progress. The 2017 editions of this popular series contain important updates, reflecting changes to the 2017 versions of the Blackstone's Police Manuals. This new edition on General Police Duties includes new questions on the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, the Serious Crime Act 2015, the Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015, the Deregulation Act 2015, the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 and the Criminal Procedure Rules 2015. There are also revised chapters on Hatred and Harassment Offences, Anti-social Behaviour, and Public Order, and a new chapter covering Protection of People Suffering from Mental Disorders. Other titles in the series are: Crime Q&A 2017, Evidence and Procedure Q&A 2017, and Road Policing Q&A 2017.
