  • Provides detailed coverage of important legal changes brought about by the Act notably; the introduction of new provisions to deal with informant evidence; and the introduction of new public order offences relating to harassment - and protest

  • Written by a team of expert practitioners in this field

 

The Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 brings about a radical shake-up of the organisations and powers to fight major crime - most notably by creating the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA). SOCA brings together the National Crime Squad, the National Criminal Intelligence Service, and parts of the customs and immigration authorities. The Act also overhauls the powers of the police officers contained in the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 - in particular by introducing new 'supergrass1 provisions dealing with the use of informant evidence. The Act introduces new public order offences in relation to harassment and protest.

Written by a team of expert practitioners in the area, this Guide comprehensively explains the scope and impact of the Act and highlights the radical changes to the law it makes including the civil liberties and human rights implications. It is structured in a clear and logical way, following the structure of the Act itself, and also contains a full copy of the Act.

 

This guide is highly recommended to all practitioners who need to know some or all of the provisions of SOCPA, as well as its wider implications. The clarity and precision of this book is exemplary and the team who compiled it are to be congratulated on producing a guide that addresses the key issues in just the right depth. It is also strongly recommended to the academic market as it provides a significant amount of food for thought and plenty of scope for argument and debate.
