Preface

Criminal Investigation, Fifth Edition, is designed to develop an analytical understanding of the investigative process. In doing so, this new edition focuses on merging theoretical and proven practical aspects of crime detection and solution. The text can be used by students with no prior investigative knowledge or as a thorough reference source by law enforcement practitioners. Criminal justice instructors will find that the detailed discussion allows ample latitude for their personal approaches and experiences.

ORIENTATION AND ORGANIZATION

As in previous editions, the importance of basic investigative foundations is stressed throughout. Additionally, the book explains the essential interrelationship of criminalistics and the investigative process. The workings of the modern crime laboratory are presented in such a fashion that the reader will comprehend the criminalistic potential of evidence. The chapters are designed to acquaint the student with the subject in a naturally expanding fashion—from the colorful historical origins of criminal investigation to the future possibilities. Each commonly encountered major crime is legally defined and discussed in terms of current status, offender characteristics, and investigative techniques. Each chapter includes key terms, objectives, and related exercises to guide the criminal justice student and facilitate comprehension of pertinent concepts.

FEATURES NEW TO THIS EDITION

Although many popular and time-proven features of past editions have been retained, the fifth edition contains considerable new material directly relevant to the investigative challenge of the new century. Each chapter has been extensively revised and updated with the latest research data from government and academic sources. New illustrations have been provided along with expanded glossary terms. Unique material detailing stalking (including "cyberstalking"), updated gang data, and complete coverage on hate crimes will be found in this edition, as well as expanded information regarding the latest drug trends with particular emphasis on methamphetamines. Material that updates the continually changing world of forensic science has been added, including discussions on the newest DNA developments and global positioning systems.

The fifth edition remains faithful to the overall design and readability of the previous editions, while incorporating significant amounts of new material necessary to prepare students for the investigative challenge of the twenty-first century.
