    Sometimes, police might drive an unmarked vehicle or a vehicle which looks like a taxi. The book contains an illuminating account of what is so far known about one particular aspect of this controversy - the clandestine help that police appear to have given to the construction industry blacklisters over many years. The text places considerable emphasis on the need for a proper methodology of approach to RIPA and other legislation affecting this area, including the revised Codes of Practice on Covert Surveillance and Property Interference and the Use and Conduct of Covert Human Intelligence Sources. Marx' Undercover: Police Surveillance in America has received from peers, practitioners and the mass media suggests that it may become one such book. An extract from the book was published by The Guardian at the weekend it can be read here.

    It examines the oversight mechanisms that exist to protectthose subjected to invasions of privacy without the proper criminal or civil processes and covers recent developments arising from the Protection of Freedoms Act, Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Act, secret hearings, the Mark Kennedy case and revelations concerning mass interception. The GLO will report back to central government to ensure that all decisions made at both the local and national level are based on accurate and up-to-date information, and take into account both operational and political implications. For similar reasons, indecent assaultprocurement for sexual intercourse by false pretences, and misconduct in office were also felt to lack sufficient basis for a conviction. It examines the statutory and procedural requirements relating to covert policing deployments, from the interception of communications and directed and intrusive surveillance resources, through to the use and conduct of covert human intelligence sources.

    Police forces and other partner organisations are, however, encouraged to use the guidance as a basis for internal guidance and training material which they produce themselves this includes reproducing extracts. Their impact is partly based on offering new ideas and data. It will also be of assistance to those working ofr the police and other public authorities authorised under the Regulation of Investigstory Powers Act to carry out surveillance and other covert activities. The amount of elaborate planning, risk, and expenditure can pressure an agent to succeed, which can cause considerable stress.

Add to basket Add to wishlist Description Following the much publicised Mark Kennedy case, the question of the necessity and proportionality of covert police operations has been widely debated. This can cause anxiety or even, in very rare cases, sympathy with those being targeted.

The text places considerable emphasis on the need for a proper methodology of approach to the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act and other legislation affecting this area. This book provides a comprehensive review of the law governing covert policing activities.

It sets out the framework within which covert policing operations should be planned and managed to enable practitioners working for either the defence or prosecution to critically consider the legality and propriety of evidence obtained in cases where covert policing resources have been deployed, including applications for Public Interest Immunity.

The book contains an illuminating account of what is so far known about one particular aspect of this controversy - the clandestine help that police appear to have given to the construction industry blacklisters over many years.
