Westlaw Criminal Law Week
Round-up of new developments regarding offences, police powers and the rules of procedure and evidence, with commentary from Criminal Law Week.
Picturing the package
Technology is continuously improving law enforcement’s ability to present evidence in images. Now, the public can also challenge what happened by incorporating a broad range of information into an advanced impression of a crime scene.
Factors of abuse
Few officers are equipped to spot those at risk of online exploitation, research shows, but they could start by seeing victims’ vulnerabilities.
Attraction of volunteering
One force has found that integrating special constables into everyday operational policing can reap huge rewards and, instead of seeing them as an add-on to the regulars, it can benefit much more from their specialist skills.
