Abstract:

Citing examples from case studies and providing descriptive outlines, charts, illustrations, and photographs, this updated fourth edition presents a comprehensive collection of techniques for crime scene investigation. Non-technical descriptions are provided for all of the essential methods for identifying, collecting, preserving, and using physical evidence in a criminal investigation. Individual chapters explore particular aspects of types of crime scenes, including homicide, burglary, sexual assault, arson, explosives, narcotics, and motor vehicle offenses. The book emphasizes a team approach to investigation, and it provides detailed guidelines for the proper handling of evidence, beginning with officers who arrive first at the crime scene. It focuses on the roles of the various specialists who must cooperate to achieve a successful case resolution. New techniques described in this edition include fingerprint detection through the use of lasers and cyanoacrylate fuming, the investigation of serial murders, and the safe handling of toxic reagents and biological evidence. An appended list of equipment for crime scene investigations, 250-item bibliography, and subject index.
