  • The "In Action" features (which present realistic scenarios on such topics as stop and frisk, the exclusionary rule, and license and registration checkpoints along with discussion questions to encourage critical thinking) and "Highlight" boxes (which briefly summarize key aspects of a law or criminal procedure policy as it relates to the chapter topic) have been updated.
  • Updated case coverage keeps pace with the most current laws and procedures. New cases include Navarette v. California (2014), which determined that an anonymous tip about a seemingly intoxicated motorist justified a traffic stop to investigate (Ch. 5); Maryland v. King, which concluded that police may collect DNA evidence from any arrestee (Ch. 6); Florence v. Board of Chosen Freeholders of the County of Burlington (2012) on the constitutionality of strip searches (Ch. 6); and Missouri v. McNeely (2013) on the need for a warrant before taking a drunken-driving suspect's blood sample (Ch. 7).
  • MindTap for Criminal Procedure: Law and Practice, 10th Edition has met the Quality Matters Review Standards and is Quality Matters Certified. For more information, visit qualitymatters.org.
  • Completely current, the tenth edition of this popular criminal procedures text reflects the latest issues and developments from the field. Expanded coverage of today's high profile issues includes detailed discussions of use of force, vehicle searches, stop and frisk, racial profiling, seizures of text/email messages, the use of technology in law enforcement, and many other relevant topics.
  • A new feature in each chapter, "Myth vs. Reality," debunks common misconceptions about criminal procedure; for instance, that a police officer may conduct a frisk after he or she makes a stop based on reasonable suspicion, or that the sole purpose of the exclusionary rule is the deterrence of police misconduct.
  • Helping readers sharpen their critical-thinking skills, "In Action" boxes and brief hypothetical cases in every chapter present practical scenarios and thought-provoking discussion questions that challenge students to apply the chapter's key concepts to real-life examples and arrive at well-reasoned conclusions. These features have been updated and revised for the tenth edition.
  • To provide maximum learning reinforcement, each chapter begins with learning objectives that are carefully matched to end-of-chapter summary sections and linked to corresponding quiz/test items in the accompanying Instructor's Manual and Test Bank.
  • Rich pedagogical aids integrated throughout the text include introductory chapter outlines, key terms, definitions of legal terms, key cases, hypothetical cases, and case briefs. The U.S. Constitution is included in an appendix for easy reference.
  • A wealth of examples from real-world situations faced by law enforcement officials provides a practical, complete, and accurate look at legal guidelines on criminal procedure without bogging students down in minutiae. Extremely reader-friendly with a clear presentation, this text makes law enforcement concepts easy to understand and apply.
