NJ Code of Criminal Justice deciphers & explains the criminal statutes to law enforcement personnel, lawyers, & lay people, making the code more accessible with fact patterns & a common word index.

New Jersey Code of Criminal Justice: A Practical Guide deciphers the criminal statutes of New Jersey for law enforcement personnel, lawyers, and laypeople. The book makes the Criminal Code more accessible with hypothetical fact patterns and a common word index. Since its original publication in 2004, Del Vecchio’s book has become a staple in police academies, municipal offices, police stations, public libraries, and even squad cars. The book is a must-have for law enforcement applicants taking competitive promotional exams and general practitioners responding to a client’s criminal matter.

This book contains the full text of Title 2C, New Jersey’s Code of Criminal Justice, and Title 39, New Jersey’s motor vehicle statutes. Del Vecchio uses fact patterns and practical applications to illustrate the statutes. Readers can look up questions with an extensive topical word index.

The initial police report is critical to the successful prosecution of a case. With remarkable clarity, Del Vecchio has provided the crucial link between theory and practice. This book should be required reading not only for anyone involved in law enforcement but also for anyone involved in enacting and prosecuting criminal statutes.” —Chief Mary F. Rabadeau (Ret.), New Jersey Transit Police

The book is drawing note for its use of fiction to illustrate how state statutes apply to real-life situations. Call it Criminal Statutes for Dummies. ... George Thomas, a professor at Rutgers Law School in Newark, said the book fills a void. 'No other book,' he said, 'attempts to show how the statutes are used in practice. To be honest,' he added, ‘I'm jealous that I didn't come up with the idea myself.’” —New York Times, July 18, 2004

Online interactive practice test included with purchase! Test your knowledge with the online companion quiz. The test scores your results, and reviews correct answers to enhance your study.

The legislature added and amended many Title 39 statutes as well, including the use of cell phones and other electronic devices in moving vehicles, and the display of veteran status on a driver’s license.
