About this Item

iv, 258, [2] pages. Illustrations. Appendix. Index. This manual supersedes FM 19-20, 30 April 1945, including C1, 16 July 1947, and C 2, 22 December 1947. Cover has some wear and soiling. The purpose of this manual is to provide military police criminal investigators with the fundamental information necessary to successful criminal investigation. The procedures described in this manual are general guides, not inflexible rules. This manual presents the techniques and procedures utilized by criminal investigators in investigating crimes, in determining the identity of persons who may be guilty of an offense under the Articles of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and in determining the facts of the offense, and explains the technique of crime prevention. Criminal investigation is an applied science that involves the study of facts, used to identify, locate and prove the guilt of an accused criminal. A complete criminal investigation can include searching, interviews, interrogations, evidence collection and preservation and various methods of investigation. Modern-day criminal investigations commonly employ many modern scientific techniques known collectively as forensic science. Criminal investigation is an ancient science that may have roots as far back as c. 1700 BCE in the writings of the Code of Hammurabi. In the modern era criminal investigations are most often done by government police forces. Private investigators are also commonly hired to complete or assist in criminal investigations. An early recorded professional criminal investigator was the English constable. Around 1250 CE it was recorded that the constable was to ".record.matters of fact, not matters of judgment and law."
