In a society afflicted by serious crime, South African citizens look to the SA Police Service for protection. Under the Constitution, police officials are responsible for upholding the law. The purpose of this book is to give them the knowledge and understanding that will equip them to do so.
In order to investigate crime effectively and gather evidence that will enable the prosecuting authorities secure convictions after due process of law, police officials have to be familiar with the fundamental elements of criminal law, criminal procedure and the law of evidence. These principles are set out in Applied Law for Police Officials. There is a clear focus on the implications of these laws for police procedures. Applied Law for Police Officials highlights the importance of effective co-operation between an investigating officer and the victim of crime, other witnesses and the prosecutor, which will greatly improve the chances of a successful criminal prosecution.
To exercise their powers lawfully, police officials must also be aware of the social context in which their duties are performed and of the constitutional principles of human rights, which receive attention throughout this book. With its unique practical approach, addressing legal principles specifically relevant to police officials, Applied Law for Police Officials will help them to provide an effective service to the community.
