Product details

A must-have for law enforcement personnel, and applicants taking highly competitive promotional exams.

"The book is drawing note for its use of fiction to illustrate how state statutes apply to real-life situations. Call it Criminal Statutes for Dummies.... George Thomas, a professor at Rutgers Law School in Newark, said the book fills a void. ’No other book,’ he said, ’attempts to show how the statutes are used in practice. To be honest,’ he added, 'I’m jealous that I didn't come up with the idea myself.'" New York Times, July 18, 2004

This new 2015 edition deciphers and explains the criminal statutes to law enforcement personnel, lawyers, and lay people. The book makes the criminal code more accessible with fact patterns and a common word index. Since its original publication in 2004, Del Vecchio's book has become a staple in police academies, municipal offices, police stations, public libraries, and even squad cars. The book is quickly becoming a must-have for law enforcement applicants taking highly competitive promotional exams. This book contains Title 2C, New Jersey's Code of Criminal Justice and Title 39, New Jersey's Motor Vehicle Statutes.
