Thomson is about to release a new text book, Criminal Process and Investigation in Victoria, by Chris Corns and Steven Tudor.
“Why do I care?” I hear you ask?
Well, this text discusses the new Criminal Procedure Act 2009 and Evidence Act 2008. (A quick reminder: I posted about the Criminal Procedure Act a few weeks ago, and it’s now proclaimed but not yet commenced operation.)
Given we have no one updating The Manual or our training resources, this might be the only commentary available to us for some time on the Criminal Procedure Act.
Although the book aims at investigators, I’m sure it will be useful for us too.
(You also might be interested to read Police summary prosecutions, a paper that Chris Corns presented at an AIC conference in 1999, History of crime, policing and punishment .)
