STAR RATING: 5/5
This must-have for appropriate adults working with vulnerable adults who are suspected of committing a criminal offence is a well put together handbook, writes Steve Tilney.
It successfully covers all areas of responsibility for appropriate adults while engaged at police stations.
Broken into four easy-to-read sections (background; procedures at the police station; police questioning; and case disposal) it is well-written using uncomplicated language and is easy to follow.
It follows a logical sequence from arrival at the police station and then works its way through the various aspects of custody procedure. It has quick reference notes and is continuously cross-referenced to the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (Pace).
It also has practice examples from the UK with contact details for each individual organisation offering support and guidance.
