[Treasury Law Enforcement School. Course 14. "Evidence." Student Guide, Text, and Handout.]
Department of the Treasury, Washington, DC. Consolidated Law Enforcement Training Center.
This packet of three booklets, which includes a student guide, textbook, and handbook, is illustrative of other booklets available from the Treasury Law Enforcement School designed for training law enforcement officers in Federal law. The material in this course, related primarily to criminal cases, focuses on presenting evidence to the court to prove the question at issue and on learning the necessary rules which need to be followed in presenting the government's case. The seven chapters of the student text provide an introduction on evidence, general concepts of evidence, hearsay, admissions and confessions, witnesses, documentary and real evidence, and advice of rights. The student guide outlines discussion of the seven chapters in the text. Five case studies are presented which give the officer in training an opportunity to apply the material contained in this course. A memorandum discussing the major problems that have arisen in the Federal Courts involving the interpretation on Miranda vs. Arizona is incorporated into the student handbook. (SJM)
