For some calls for service, we wait until we're back at headquarters before making a decision on how to handle it.  Having a chance to go through the 2C book, consult with other officers and supervisors or even contact our legal advisor helps us get it right.

But there are times where we must make a decision at the scene.  And this calls for a good working knowledge of the New Jersey 2C Criminal Code.

For example, the statute for simple assault, 2C:12-1a, has three sections.  Without looking, can you name them?

2C:12-1 Assault.

2C:12-1. Assault. a. Simple assault. A person is guilty of assault if he:

(1)  Attempts to cause or purposely, knowingly or recklessly causes bodily injury to another; or

(2)  Negligently causes bodily injury to another with a deadly weapon; or

(3)  Attempts by physical menace to put another in fear of imminent serious bodily injury.

Simple assault is a disorderly persons offense unless committed in a fight or scuffle entered into by mutual consent, in which case it is a petty disorderly persons offense.

Subsection (1) is the most common, but many are not familiar with (2) or (3) as they are used a lot less often.
