Enforcing Federal Statutes is an important addition to our Police Foundations and Law and Security Administration series. Author Nora Rock is a lawyer and the author of several other texts in this series. The principal advantage of Enforcing Federal Statutes is its law enforcement perspective. Statutory provisions and regulations discussed were specifically selected for their relevance to the law enforcement context. This text makes complex federal statutes accessible to students within the time constraints and reading requirements of a community college or undergraduate university course.

  • Written in clear, concise language
  • Provides a theoretical and legislative foundation in the areas of controlled substances and weapons legislation in law enforcement, as well as a comprehensive introduction to other federally regulated areas such as copyright
  • Issues and challenges encountered when enforcing these statutes are introduced and students are encouraged to explore practical solutions to these problems
  • Chapters are supported by both group and individual exercises. Many exercises require students to look for solutions beyond the specific chapter content
  • A glossary of terms reinforces concepts and supports student mastery of new, context-specific vocabulary
  • Provides references as well as links to related websites
  • Photographs of weapons heighten students’ identification abilities
