This pocket-sized manual is an essential reference for law enforcement officers to ensure compliance with the stringent requirements of the Criminal Code and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms in the context of the police powers of arrest, search and seizure, and interrogation.

The tenth edition of Salhany's Police Manual highlights the case law that has been introduced since the ninth edition in 2009. Some of the more significant cases include:
  • Updates discussion of police powers under Federal and Provincial statutes, sealing orders, counterfeit money, recording statements and vulnerable witnesses.
  • In Nesbeth (2008, Ont. C.A.), leave to appeal denied (2009, S.C.C.), the Ontario Court of Appeal suggested that the police need to be investigating a specific crime before they may exercise their limited power of investigative detention; a general aura of criminality might suffice.
  • Grant (2009, S.C.C.) is the latest word from the Supreme Court of Canada on the definition of "detention" for purposes of ss. 9 and 10 of the Charter. The Court noted that detention must be defined in a manner consistent with its purposes, which were to protect individual liberty from unjustified state intrusions and to trigger the point at which rights subsidiary to detention, like the right to silence and the right to counsel, are engaged.
  • The Court came to a different conclusion in the companion case of Harrison (2009, S.C.C.). At issue in Harrison was the admissibility of 35 kg of cocaine seized from the trunk of the accused's rental vehicle following an arbitrary detention and unlawful search in violation of the accused's Charter rights.
