Blackstone's Police Manuals 2019, endorsed by the College of Policing, are the only official study guides for the NPPF Step Two Legal Examination (formerly OSPRERG Part I).Straightforward and accessible, Blackstone's Police Manuals are the only resource used by question writers when preparing a NPPF Step Two Legal Examination and each of the four volumes forms part of the only comprehensive version of the 2019 syllabus.

Blackstone's Police Manual Volume 4: General Police Duties 2019 covers areas including Terrorism and Associated Offences, Complaints and Misconduct, Weapons, and Public Disorder, as well as PACE Codes A, B, and G. For complex or commonly misunderstood areas, there are handy Keynote boxes, which point to relevant case law or provide an example of how material is used in a practical sense, helping you to establish the connections between legislation and police procedure. The 2019 edition has been updated to incorporate all recent legislative developments and case law, including coverage of the Policing and Crime Act 2017 and its wide-ranging effects, as well as the Data Protection Act 2018 and updates from the Investigatory Powers Act 2016, among others.

Also available in the series are: Volume 1: Crime 2019, Volume 2: Evidence and Procedure 2019, and Volume 3: Road Policing 2019.
