Blackstone's Counter-Terrorism Handbook is the first book on counter-terrorism aimed specifically at the police and their counter terrorism training needs.
Policing counter-terrorism forms a central strand of the 2009-2012 National Policing Plan, under which all police officers are expected to have a basic understanding of policing counter-terrorism and anti-terrorism legislation. The timely publication of this invaluable and user-friendly book provides specialist and non-specialist officers with a practical guide to both the national and police counter-terrorism structures and strategies and the relevant provisions of anti-terrorism legislation, drawn from the Police National Legal Database.
Designed in the same portable, weatherproof style as the successful Blackstone's Operational Handbook, this book is an ideal practical resource - a quick and easy reference tool when out on the ground
The book is divided into two parts, offering readers both a helpful and informative history and context to policing counter-terrorism as well as all the relevant legislation, drawn from and linked to the government-sponsored Police National Legal Database. Part 1 of the Handbook provides readers with an operational framework and context to counter-terrorism. It summarises the different types of terrorist organisations, featuring a comprehensive list of Proscribed Organisations with a page devoted to the key facts for each. The first part also outlines the police counter-terrorism structure, the Government's CONTEST strategy, and the roles and functions of key organisations (from M15 to HM Revenue & Excise).
All this information is supplemented with case studies, practical scenarios and checklists, to illustrate the practical application of the legislation. Part 2 is devoted to counter-terrorism legislation itself, focussing primarily on police powers and procedures. Explanatory notes accompany these provisions, related case law and points to prove, ensuring that the information is easily comprehensible and digestible
An essential resource for all patrol officers and PCSOs, this book is the first of it's kind to be aimed specifically at the police and their counter-terrorism training needs.
Readership: The book's primary markets are: all patrol officers and PCSOs, counter terrorism officers, special branch investigators, counter-terrorism security advisers, and intelligence officers.
This title will also be of interest to key organisations including the Serious Organised Crime Agency, the NPIA, force libraries, the Home Office, local authorities, the security services, and academic institutions offering postgraduate and foundation courses in terrorism studies, intelligence, policing and police investigation.
