For years, it has proved to be an indispensable guide to civil and criminal liability stemming from acts or omissions committed by the security function. This newest edition updates the principles with new case law. But the highlight of this book is the chapter devoted to judicial decisions old and new. Other notable chapters cover regulations, licensing, education and training; search and seizure; the interpretation of evidence; and co-operation among public and private law enforcement. Toward the end of the book, Nemeth explores the "caster system" between security and law enforcement. This section, which explains how to overcome this mentality, is a must-read for security management professionals.

While it reads like the legal text it is, the book is nevertheless well worth investing time in." - The Intelligence Group International
