"I believe the book is excellent and meets the needs of my courses and their curricula."
"As this text has grown from its original edition, it has developed and kept abreast of the latest innovations in technology, police techniques, procedures, and operations...There is a smooth flow of information that is never overbearing or difficult to understand."
"The three greatest strengths of this book are ease of use, the comprehensive nature of the chapters, and the timeliness of the information."
"An investigative cookbook. The authors show the investigator what to look for, how to process it, and how to handle it all the way through the complexities of the criminal justice system, from crime scene to courtroom."
"The section on testifying in court is extremely valuable...The advice on presentation and demeanor are great. This chapter is one more reason (of many) why students should not sell back this book, but rather keep it as a reference throughout their law enforcement careers."
