The purpose of this book is to guide the new criminal investigator who is about to enter the highly-regulated and complex field of criminal environmental investigation. This type of criminal investigation has a "steep learning curve." Every hazardous waste evidence-gathering operation is strictly regulated by numerous laws and mandated procedures. This book has been written in a format that will take the new investigator successfully through this learning process. In addition, the text provides the comprehensive procedures and techniques necessary to successfully complete a criminal environmental investigation. Some of the major issues addressed include training, equipment, available resources, gathering probable cause, search warrant team structure, search warrant execution, gathering evidence in a hot zone, drum tracing techniques, and sampling and analysis for criminal evidence. Each of the investigative techniques and procedures described in the book have been successfully used in criminal environmental prosecutions, and each chapter has been designed as a comprehensive reference to assist the environmental investigator with the individual tasks he or she may face.
