The third edition of Provincial Offences: Essential Tools for Law Enforcement continues to guide students studying provincial laws commonly enforced in Ontario. Through their experience as both police officers and teachers, authors Peter Maher and Dan Gilbert provide practical commentary and student-centred activities that set Provincial Offences apart as a valuable teaching and learning tool. The text stresses a working knowledge of the law based on the kinds of real-life situations that future officers will encounter in the field.

Starting with the Provincial Offences Act, each chapter covers a specific act commonly encountered by police officers and other public safety agencies in the province. Following an easy-to-navigate, student-friendly format, chapters begin with a basic introduction to the Act that is the subject of the chapter, followed by a list of the terminology that is crucial to interpreting and applying the provisions. Common offences and/or provisions are examined, and the arrest and search powers are described. A separate section indicates whether the Act authorizes use of force. The next section outlines the limitation periods, and the final section points out any non-police agencies involved in administering the provisions. Excerpts from the Act that are relevant to officers follow, and practical exercises at the end of each chapter challenge students to apply the various provisions to real-world situations.
