Often lost in the focus on the rights of criminal suspects is the notion that law enforcement officers themselves possess rights. Those rights are often poorly understood and sporadically applied. This book is a comprehensive review of the rights of law enforcement officers. The book is designed for the layperson, yet contains the supporting case law and statutory citations necessary to make it a reference tool for attorneys. This sixth edition of The Rights of Law Enforcement Officers contains numerous changes from previous versions of the book, in areas ranging from free speech, to the Garrity and Weingarten rules, to a discussion of major shifts in the law in areas such as discrimination. It also includes references to hundreds of new cases decided in the last five years.
