Blackstone's Handbook of Ports & Border Security is a practical, portable handbook for police officers and other professionals concerned with security and crime prevention at all UK ports and borders.
Over the past decade, significant legislative and operational changes have been introduced to strengthen British borders against international organized crime and terrorism. Police officers, counter-terrorism officers, immigration and customs officials are now required to work together within new operating procedures and organizations. This book brings together all the relevant legislation, as well as powers, procedures and strategies for those professionals. Divided into two parts, Part 1 offers clear and detailed explanations of strategy, operational guidance, case studies, and an outline of the functions of key agencies. Part 2 is devoted to the legislation itself, focusing primarily on the powers and procedures for police, immigration and customs officers, and the main offences relating to terrorist and extremist activity, organized crime, criminal assets, firearms, and aviation, rail and maritime security. Written by the Police National Legal Database, Part 2 features explanatory notes, related cases and points to prove.
Readership: All police officers working at UK ports and borders, the UK Border Force, immigration and customs officials working within the UKBA on crime detection, Special Branch Ports officers, Counter Terrorism Units, firearms officers working at ports and borders, PCSOs and NP Teams at ports and borders on general police duties.
