"I believe this is an essential handbook for all crime scene investigation students. I am confident that many practitioners also will find it a useful source of reference. I have no hesitation in commending this volume as a valuable standard text for crime scene examiners."G.C. Knupfer, Former Detective Chief Superintendent and Dean of Studies, National Training Centre for Scientific Support to Crime Investigation, UK
Forensic evidence is increasingly significant in the detection and prosecution of crime. This means that the knowledge, skill and ability of the person who examines the scene of the crime - the Crime Scene Investigator (CSI) - has never been more important.
This book guides aspiring and newly appointed CSIs through the methods and procedures for the accurate recording and recovery of evidence from the scene of a crime. It features photographs, drawings, self-assessment questions, and checklists of roles, equipment and activities required at the crime scene, providing the student or trainee CSI with a step-by-step handbook and the practising CSI with an invaluable reference. The book also offers a broad understanding of the development and context within which a modern CSI must work as an integral member of investigative teams.
Crime Scene Investigation is essential reading for all students of forensic law enforcement, especially those wishing to become Crime Scene Investigators. The text is ideal for undergraduate and FE students and as a reference for trainee forensic practitioners.
