Stewart Calligans legal career started when he joined the police service. He served in most operational and departmental roles and became Chief Superintendent in charge of Training and Human Resources.
He was awarded an honours degree in Law from London University. After training probationers and senior constables he wrote the first National Police Training Manual and published his first two books in the 1980's. The books POINTS TO PROVE and TAKING STATEMENTS filled gaps in the initial training courses. Later, just after PACE, he published the CUSTODY OFFICER'S COMPANION. The only police health book was the next called POLICING YOUR HEALTH and dealt with specific health matters for shift workers etc.
All the books are constantly updated and interim amendments in between editions can be obtained free by email on request.
