For courses in Criminal Justice, Criminal Law, and Policing.  

Specific to the state of New York, this book has taken on the monumental task of explaining what the criminal statutes mean. The first of its kind, it contains every statute found in the New York penal code and every New York motor vehicle statute, all in complete verbatim text. Chapters are accompanied by illustrative stories and practical application sections that draw readers in and help them apply statutes to realistic situations.  Its goal is to decipher each New York statute ineasy-to-understand terms–discussing what the statutes mean, how one charges under them, the differences among them and the elements of the offenses.
