9780133515138: Crime Scene Investigation: The Forensic Technician's Field Manual

This text was developed to address the need for detailed, step-by-step protocols for processing crime scenes, with photographs and diagrams illustrating these steps. Crime Scene Investigation: The Forensic Technician's Field Manual, 2e, was written in response to the need for a text that addresses the tasks performed by the person who identifies, photographs, documents, collects, preserves, and transports evidence at and from a crime scene. The book is organized as a step-by-step guide for the college student as well as the sworn peace officer or civilian who functions as a crime scene or forensic (evidence) technician. Numerous photographs and diagrams illustrate the techniques discussed. The protocols and processes suggested are consistent with guidelines established by the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors (ASCLD) and the International Association for Identification (IAI). Therefore, policies and procedures in a reader's jurisdiction may differ slightly. Unlike the competition's theory-based approach, this is a truly hands-on text. Teaching and Learning Experience This book provides readers with a hands-on approach showing detailed directions and step-by-step guidelines supported by illustrations, photographs, diagrams and charts.
