Criminal Investigation  August 10, 2011
by


This book is the textbook for my Principles of Criminal Investigations class, part of my Investigative Services major in Criminal Justice. It very accurately illustrates what criminal investigation is about, it is very much about the factual part of investigations. Also it is not just about investigating the scene of a crime but it's very vividly describes crimes and criminals as well as other aspects of the investigation like the psychology and methods involved in divert viewing.
This is a must have for any future investigator.






Criminal Investigation : The Art and the Science: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.
