Most Helpful Customer Reviews

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Lewis. B on 4 Mar 2011
Format: Hardcover
The first book of its kind and one that will prove invaluable to both legal practitioners and police forces. The author's ability to steer the reader through a complex area of law in a clear and accessible way provides both legal insight and practical guidance.

There is no questioning Mr McKay's extensive experience in this area; the chapters detailing surveillance, (covert human, private and non-regulated surveillance) and trial issues are particularly astute. Those having to contemplate the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (2000) will no doubt find that this book becomes one of their primary resources.

Solicitor.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Peter Russell on 13 April 2011
Format: Hardcover
The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act(RIPA) has proven problematic to both judiciary and practitioners alike and the guidance this book provides is long overdue. The legislation cannot be properly understood without a clear understanding of related Human Rights issues. This book takes a unique approach by providing a comprehensive explanation of the relevant Human Rights issues and then expanding on this by providing a practical framework within which such issues can be correctly managed at the operational level.

The author provides the reader the luxury of his reasoning for every interpretation provided, this is what makes the book invaluable. By this means the reader is provided with the information and the reasoning they require in order to make up their own minds on the issues. Whether the reader agrees with every interpretation the author provides is irrelevant, the point is that they cannot read the book and fail to learn important concepts.

Anyone involved with the application of RIPA, or the consequences of it's application really must have a well used copy of this book on their desks.
