California Criminal Investigation

NOW SHIPPING: We are now shipping the 2017 edition of California Criminal Investigation. If you haven't seen CCI yet, it's a reference manual in which we have organized and condensed the rules and principles pertaining to criminal investigations in California. Written for officers, prosecutors, and judges, CCI is both comprehensive and authoritative, as it is based on over 30 years of legal research and the published decisions of the United States Supreme Court, the California Supreme Court, the California Court of Appeal, and the twelve federal circuit courts. The coverage is thorough, but concise and practical. For example, case citations, examples, notes, and comments have been placed in the endnote section so as to keep the main text trim and easily accessible. CCI 2017--which is the 21st annual edition--contains 706 pages, with over 3,400 endnotes including comments, examples, significant quotes from court opinions, and over 13,000 case citations.
