Description: This handbook addresses the problems confronting criminal justice practitioners and their agencies due to the increased number of civil liability lawsuits. It introduces the reader to civil liability generally and the federal law specifically, while indicating steps that can be taken to minimize risks. Due to increasing civil litigation against criminal justice agencies, students and practitioners not only need a working knowledge of criminal law but a firm grasp on the civil law process. Hundreds of cases are referenced throughout the text.
