Abstract:

Intended for criminal justice students and police personnel interested in understanding and improving investigative techniques, this volume details methods for conducting preliminary and follow-up investigations. The author, who has 22 years of experience in law enforcement, emphasizes the importance of interpersonal skills, sensitivity, and an awareness of both human and constitutional rights. The text focuses on methods of improving the efficiency and effectiveness of preliminary and follow-up investigations through the use of innovative, creative, and practical ways of improving procedural systems. Individual sections focus on the administrative climate of investigations, the role of patrol officers in preliminary investigations, and the role of the detective in follow-up investigations. Further chapters explain the attitudes and skills required for information gathering, including an inquiring mind, powers of observation, social skills, and interviewing skills. Specific aspects of investigation are also detailed, including interviewing victims and witnesses, surveillance, financial investigations, and interviewing and obtaining confessions from suspects. Further chapters explain case management, including the management of investigative information; the preparation of the preliminary and follow-up investigative report, supplementary reports, and charging documents; and the investigator's relationship with the prosecutor and conduct as a witness during the trial. Figures, checklists, chapter reference notes, and index.
