This is a MUST HAVE for Police and Law Enforcement. I have been using Shield Basic for many years. The short wording is precise, fines and demerit points are awesome. Federal and Provincial statutes are updated regularly and correctly. I highly recommend Shield Basic for all recruits I coach. The "My Favorites" section is excellent for a quick resource. I have never had a challenge with the App not working and the two times I have a a question the staff response was quick & professional.

This is a very useful tool on the road. Prefer it over carrying multiple books in duty bag. Stays current and is useable without cell service in rural areas without cell towers. Worth the money.
