From the Back Cover

Together, the authors of criminal investigation: Basic Perspectives have in excess of fifty years of law enforcement experience with a variety of agencies such as the United States Postal Inspection Service, the United States Marshal’s Service, the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department, the New York Police Department and the California State Police.  From this perspective the authors have written a well-balanced, comprehensive text on criminal investigation.


This Eleventh edition has been updated and includes:

• Two newly rewritten chapters on the Rules of Evidence and Terrorism. 

• New discussion regarding the development of forensic science has been added to the chapter on the Initial Investigation.

• New section on Lineups has been added to the chapter on Major Investigative Techniques.

• Expanded discussion on child sexual abuse and pedophilia in the chapter on Sexual Assaults.


In addition, two new case studies have been added to this edition as well as 190 multiple choice and fill-in chapter review questions.  These case studies and chapter review questions, that are included at the end of each chapter, are designed to highlight the chapter content and enhance the learning process.  Criminal Investigation Basic Perspectives, Eleventh Edition is a resource that will prepare students for the challenging world of criminal investigation.


My overall comment on the text is that it is well organized.  I really like the cast studies that are provided at the end of each chapter.  ‘WOW’ these are great selling points in themselves.  This author is an expert, not just an educator.”
