PARK CITY, Utah, Jan. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Blue360°™ Media, the leading information supplier to the law enforcement community, is joining forces with New York State Association of Chiefs of Police to co-publish a line of legal publications customized by New York officers for New York officers. This development provides police officers, police chiefs, sheriffs, training academy instructors, and other members of New York State law enforcement with access not only to state criminal and traffic laws, but also key New York resources that make their jobs easier to accomplish.
Chief Michael W. Lefancheck, president of the New York State Association of Chiefs of Police, states of the association’s partnership with Blue360° Media: “We’re excited to bring New York-specific sections to all officers in the state of New York and hope that these publications will become valuable resources to every officer.”
The 2018 edition of the New York Law Enforcement Handbook is the first publication to release from Blue360° Media and NYSACOP’s partnership and brings new content to a longstanding resource. The New York Law Enforcement Handbook, which is in its twenty-third year of publication, includes a special informational section—the New York “Blue Pages”—that provide valuable protocols, investigative tips and guidelines, quick legal references, checklists, and supporting depositions for an officer’s use in the field and at headquarters. The New York Law Enforcement Handbook also covers new laws, statutes, and legal changes from the latest legislative session, such as:
New York police officers are to complete training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation during the police academy and every 2 years thereafter. Law related to proper maintenance of victim evidence kits clarified to explicitly apply to police and prosecutorial agencies. New legislation, to be phased in over time, raises the age of criminal responsibility to 18 years old.
The New York Law Enforcement Handbook is now available for advanced purchase on Blue360° Media’s website. For a complete listing of Blue360° Media publications, visit www.blue360media.com.
