Summary and Info
Forensic evidence is increasingly important in the detection and prosecution of crime. This means that the knowledge, skill, and ability of the person who examines the scene of the crime—the crime scene investigator (CSI)—have never been more important. This text guides an aspiring or newly appointed CSI through the methods and procedures for the accurate recording and recovery of evidence from the scene of a crime. It features photographs, drawings, self-assessment questions, and checklists of roles, equipment, and activities required at the crime scene. Crime Scene Investigation is essential reading for all students of forensic law enforcement.
