Looseleaf Law Publications, Inc. announces the release of, Navigating the Legal Minefield of Private Investigations: A Career-Saving Guide for Private Investigators, Detectives and Security Police, written by attorney, private investigator and former FBI Special Agent Ron Hankin. Designed to serve as both a general office reference and a quick-access field guide, this new book will help even the most experienced professionals enhance their performance while ensuring the legality of their actions.

"Conducting private investigations can be extremely challenging and at times perilous, both in terms of physical safety and legal safety," says Hankin. "Making the wrong move during a private investigation can not only jeopardize your case, but can result in an investigator facing serious legal ramifications. More often than not, a poor decision in the field isn't based on an investigator's willful decision to break the law," he continues. "Rather, it's made as the result of ignorance of the nuances of the law. I wrote Navigating the Legal Minefield of Private Investigations to help prevent investigators from being forced to make uneducated decisions about the legalities of their actions during the course of their investigations."

Topics covered in this new release include expert guidance for walking the fine legal line between "surveillance" and "stalking", the parameters of trespassing laws, in-depth discussion of the do's and don'ts of intelligence gathering methods that involve ruses and impersonations, guidance on making sure you don't break wiretapping laws, and help understanding the issues surrounding eavesdropping.

"Our editorial review staff quickly identified this as an important book for a number of reasons," says Michael Loughrey, President of Looseleaf Law Publications. "They immediately recognized that this manual fills a dangerous informational gap that could put private investigators at personal risk. It provides crucial insights into the laws that

directly impact their professional actions in a succinct, easy to understand fashion that lends itself perfectly to use where and when it matters most: in the field. On top of that, Ron shares powerful investigatory tips learned during his many years as an investigator that will help other private professionals be more effective. We're proud to have the Looseleaf Law logo on this publication."

"Ron Hankin's book provides a brilliant account of the diverse areas of law that touch on investigative work," says Assistant Illinois State's Attorney Matthew Medina. "Ron has the unique ability to discuss diverse and complex legal topics of the law in a clear and accessible fashion without sacrificing expertise. I absolutely love this book and give it my highest recommendation."
