PNLD is an information resource of criminal justice legislation

PNLD has been providing a legal database and other legal products and services to the 43 Home Office police forces in England and Wales and the British Transport Police for over 20 years. During that time, our customer base has expanded to include policing partners and other law enforcement agencies across the criminal justice system, for example, the Crown Prosecution Service, Trading Standards and academic institutions. Our legal database contains Acts of Parliament, Common Law, Regulations, Orders and Byelaws, summaries of relevant cases and the standard offence wordings used throughout the court system. To ensure the information is readily understood, all legislation is annotated with clear explanations and guidance and is written in plain English by our dedicated team of Legal Advisers. PNLD's legal database is available on subscription to support all those with an interest in criminal justice, whether professionally, academically or for their personal development. Over the years, the criminal justice and law enforcement landscape has continually evolved. PNLD has risen to the challenge by developing additional innovative products and services providing solutions. As PNLD has grown over 20 years, it has become apparent that the management of a growing commercial business is incompatible with the strategic aims, policies and procedures of a public authority. On 5th January 2015, PNLD was registered by the Charity Commission of England and Wales as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (Registration No 1159767). Incorporation has enabled flexibility of operation as a dynamic business within specific charitable objects and oversight by an independent Board of Trustees. In the longer term, PNLD will be able to provide a broader range of products and services for the benefit of its customers and users.

๐Ÿ“œ| NEW Legal Article: Antique Fi****ms

The number of antique fi****ms used in crime has remained at a relatively high level over the last few years, with the absence of a legal definition of โ€˜antique firearmโ€™ being exploited by criminals.

Following a public consultation, a new statutory definition for antique fi****ms has now been legislated.

PNLD Legal Adviser, Danielle Johnson explores the new definition and the changes to the law in more detail.
