Summary "The law of criminal investigation and procedure in Victoria is undergoing significant changes, with major new statutes ا the Evidence Act 2008 (Vic) and the Criminal Procedure Act 2009 (Vic) ا soon to come into operation. This book is the essential guide to the new terrain of criminal procedure in Victoria. Criminal Investigation and Procedure: The Law in Victoria provides: Reference both to the current law and to the law soon to commence operation, so that the work is of immediate and enduring use; Clear and concise expositions of the relevant law, with case and legislative authorities succinctly identified; Focused analysis of selected issues of policy and principle; and Comprehensive coverage of all stages of the criminal process: investigation, prosecution, trial, sentencing, and appeal. As the investigation stage is vital to the unfolding of the criminal process, this work places particular emphasis on the laws and principles governing criminal investigations. Detailed yet accessible coverage is given to arrest and bail, questioning, search and seizure powers, fingerprinting and forensic procedures, and covert investigations. Throughout the book, relevant rights pertaining to the Victorian Charter of Human rights and Responsibilities are identified so that the law of criminal investigation and procedure in Victoria is clearly placed into its human rights context. The impact of the Charter, which came fully into operation on 1 January 2008, is gradually being felt across the Victorian criminal justice system."--Publisher's website.
