The Process of Investigation: Concepts and Strategies for Investigators in the Private Sector
Butterworth-Heinemann/Elsevier, 2006 - Business & Economics - 332 pages
The field of professional investigation has long been considered the exclusive domain of the public sector. In years past, members of private enforcement agencies have been overlooked in favor of their public counterparts. With professionalism marking a new era in private security, the author draws the line and clearly defines the private sector as an individual investigative arm.
The Process of Investigation, Third Edition, continues in its tradition of serving as a valuable handbook for investigators working in the private sector. It contains complete updates since its June '01 publication. This includes mention and coverage, where relevant, of the effects of 9/11 on the security industry, particularly the need to incorporate awareness of terrorism and terrorist activities when investigating any suspicious behavior, events or actions. A legal change in the Fair Credit Reporting Act is included in Chapter 5 specifically; other more minor modifications in legislation that have been passed and implemented since the last edition are also addressed throughout.
The Third Edition contains two brand new chapters. Chapter 10 discusses interviewing and interrogations, written by two premier experts, Doug Wicklander and Dave Zulawski. Chapter 23 addresses the issues of workplace violence, and includes coverage of stalking, domestic violence spillover into workplaces, red flags, and the Theory of Threat Assessment and Management (TAM), among other topics.
