  • What law book?

    Looking at starting to study the law so it will be easier to lateral into a Colorado department from out of state. Out of these two books what one do you recommended.

    Cops here use the one made by west law. They make the official CRS for Colorado. Dry reading good luck.

      With your experience would I be ok with either of the other books I linked. The west book is about $100 more.

        If you're trying to learn i would go with the west book. That's what they test from. The majority you'll need is the 18 code (criminal) and 42 code (traffic)

          This is free: https://www.lexisnexis.com/hottopics/colorado/

          Just click on Colorado Revised Statutes and then check out titles 18 for criminal, 42 for traffic and 16 for procedure.

          There's also a few questions on the POST test I believe on title 19. (children's code)

            Any other tips? The first time I took it coming from Fl I was 2 point short, I figured 2nd time would be easy since I knew what to expect and I studied for it. Apparently I was wrong, completely different questions. Has anyone taken the 3rd time, I’m preparing for that now. Is my last shot.

          How hard is the POST test. If I know basic law enforcement procedures and my states law with it be pretty easy with some studying

            Did you take the test ?

          Yea knowing basic stuff like PC and RS will help, but knowing about criminal codes in your state will not help. You need to know CO statutes. If anything knowing your state's laws might make it more difficult because your felony might be a Misd in CO and vice versa. Also, theft limits and other things will probably be a little different.

          If you lateral out here to a dept that makes you go through their academy, they will prepare you for the POST test. The POST test can be tricky with some obscure questions. But obviously it's passable.

            Dude. Seven year old thread. This is why you aren’t passing the POST exam.

              Dude, I am aware. I just figured another LEO could respond faster than creating a new post. Obviously I have achieved that, too bad it was not the answer to the question I posted but rather a sarcastic comment. I am glad to see I’m surrounded by brothers eager to help, it certainly shows.
