If you're anything like me, then you enjoy watching TV shows like CSI-Miami, Criminal Minds,NCIS, The Next 48, and other popular shows that depict the investigative side of law enforcement. Now, you can find out how a REAL Crime Scene Investigation is done!
As I sit in front of the tube each week, anxiously waiting for CSI-Miami to come on, I quite often wonder where do all the techniques and strategies used to set the plot for our most favorite TV shows like CSI-New York come from. In the course of a day, our daily newspaper consistently supply us with information about the many crimes that occur just overnight.
You can believe me when I say that under the least certain terms is the information in the newspapers we read everyday being fabricated. There is no better place to retrieve these gruesome stories than the local Police and Sheriff's Departments. While on that subject, there is no better profession for locating evidence, securing the crime scene, and finding the bad guy, than the Crime Scene Investigator whose job is to enter the crime scene as the perpetrator left it, and ultimately render a guilty verdict in court.
When involving in crime scene investigations, in order to establish a location of an incident, and especially now that you have determined that something illegal has actually occurred, the investigation will commence at the time the investigating officer is called to respond to the scene.
Solving cases at the crime scene not only helps the confidence of the investigating officer, but it tends to bring some type of closure to family members and loved ones. It is very important for investigators to feel 100% confident about the evidence collected at a crime scene, and to know that the evidence will be directly connected to criminal cases being presented in court. When crimes are solves, it gives families the chance to see for themselves that the system really does work.
My professional career experience has been in the field of Law Enforcement, as I have served as a police officer for twenty-three years...14-plus years as a Crime Scene Investigator. My ultimate goal is to provide information about conducting a crime scene investigation back to the general public in the form of my recently published book.
I am offering my 76-page book, How To Conduct a Basic Crime Scene Investigation, that details the step-by-step process of crime scene investigation, and keeps the reader in-tune with everything a crime scene investigator should know about a crime scene, from the moment the investigator is notified, until the case is solved!
