In recent years, the law relating to entry, search and seizure has undergone major change. Significant legislation, including the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012, has led to the amendment and abolition of powers, creating a complex and dynamic legal landscape. What powers are available? Whomay use them? And under what circumstances? A practical guide to the powers available in both criminal and civil proceedings, The Law of Entry, Search and Seizure offers comprehensive analysis of the powers available to the police and other officials in light of all the relevant legislation. It contains exhaustive treatment of police powersboth at common law and under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 and subsequent legislation such as the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005, including powers of personal search as well as searches of premises. The book also covers the powers of many other officials, such as the HMRevenue and Customs, trading standards officers, and the powers of central and local government officers.
