PREFACE TO THIRD EDITION.

AFTER careful revision, a Third and enlarged Edition of this work is now issued. Any profits made by its sale will be devoted to purposes for the benefit of the Royal Irish Constabulary.

PREFACE TO SECOND EDITION.

As the First Edition of this work was well received, I have been induced to prepare a Second Edition. I have carefully revised the whole work, and have increased its size by adding new matter of one hundred and forty pages.

Part I. of the First Edition is omitted, as the instructions, &c., contained in it are now embodied in the Author's Handbook, entitled-“The Policeman's Manual.”

In order to make the work as concise as possible, the Statutes in many instances are given in an abstract form; the punishments

and penalties prescribed for offences are in general omitted ; and the authorities for the Legal Instructions (taken from the leading Textbooks) are seldom quoted.

In the Appendix the full text of the following Acts are given :--The Summary Jurisdiction (Ireland) Act, 1851 (14 & 15 Vic., c. 92); The Petty Sessions (Ireland) Act, 1851 (14 & 15 Vic., c. 93); and The Small Penalties (Ireland) Act, 1873.

Any profits, after payment of expenses, which may be made by the sale of the book, will be paid over to the Queen's Jubilee Fund of the Royal Irish Constabulary for the relief of the necessitous orphans of members of the Force.
