Criminal Investigation, Third Edition, takes an integrated approach to the investigation process. This introductory text explores how contributors to criminal investigation—and its resulting prosecution—are more effective when they understand and appreciate their role on the team, what role other team members play, and how it all comes together. Readers will learn how investigations are connected to a team that is much larger than those charged with the investigations of a crime. The end result is a solid foundation in criminal investigation.
