For courses in Criminal Investigation.
Criminal Investigation: A Brief Introduction is written in an innovative “brief” format, making it more easily understood by students and more user-friendly for instructors. It presents crime detection as a field that relies heavily on past experiences of investigators as well as recent practical, forensic, and technological innovations. This new text blends scientific theories of crime detection with a practical approach to criminal investigation and follows the belief that sound criminal investigations depend understanding the science of crime detection procedures and the art of anticipating human behavior.
