Using a unique format and style, this essential handbook draws on the expertise of contributors with police and academic backgrounds to provide both new and seasoned detectives with invaluable insights. It covers a wide range of detective procedures and practices employed in the United States and can be read as a whole or used as a reference for conducting various types of investigations and interrogations. The book highlights common mistakes and outlines best practices to help readers avoid making the same mistakes in the field. It provides the tools and understanding to conduct the range of investigations that today’s detectives will most likely have to conduct, including those involving sexual predators, healthcare and financial fraud, cyber crime, gangs, cults, personal violence, and property. The text concludes with a section on all-purpose practices and lessons for investigations. In this section, readers will learn the practical aspects of interviewing and interrogating witnesses, including how to interview and communicate with special populations, such as those with mental and physical disabilities. Sharing the most effective investigative practices and procedures in use today, this book is a must-have for police, sheriffs, and other government agencies that are responsible for protecting the public.

Computerized crime mapping or GIS in law enforcement agencies has experienced rapid growth, particularly since the mid 1990s. There has also been increasing interests in GIS analysis of crime from various academic fields including criminology, geography, urban planning, information science and others. This book features a diverse array of GIS applications in crime analysis, from general issues such as GIS as a communication process and inter-jurisdictional data sharing to specific applications in tracking serial killers and predicting juvenile violence. Geographic Information Systems and Crime Analysis showcases a broad range of methods and techniques from typical GIS tasks such as geocoding and hotspot analysis to advanced technologies such as geographic profiling, agent-based modeling and web GIS. Contributors range from university professors, criminologists in research institutes to police chiefs, GIS analysts in police departments and consultants in criminal justice.

This volume presents a summary of a comprehensive survey, conducted in 1975, of the state-of-the-art of crime analysis in support of traditional preventive patrol, team policing, and specialized patrol. This volume is the result of a national evaluation program effort on crime analysis. Methods utilized during the study included an extensive review of the literature on crime analysis, site visits to 23 police departments, and an investigation of evaluation strategies for crime analysis. An overview of the procedures and results of the literature review and on-site visits is first presented. In general, the authors found that both these approaches provided little insight into the actual value of crime analysis, although police intuitively believe in its value. The report then turns to an analysis of the relation between program goals and objectives and crime analysis. Objectives and assumptions relating to patrol and crime analysis are listed, and for each a suggested measurement for the impact of crime analysis is given. Most of the measures suggested are of a qualitative nature. The findings of the study indicate that crime analysis has no value in and of itself. The authors conclude that because crime analysis programs are so inseparable from the patrol programs they support and have such a variety of potential forms, evaluation of crime analysis, apart from the patrol programs, would seem to have little value. It is suggested that the evaluation frameworks developed in this project be incorporated into larger evaluation efforts targeted toward selected patrol programs.

The ability of law enforcement agencies to manage intelligence is key to fighting the war on terror, and a critical foundation of intelligence-led policing is proper analysis of the information gained. Terrorism and Organized Hate Crime: Intelligence Gathering, Analysis, and Investigations, Third Edition provides a methodical approach to analyzing homeland security needs, enabling the law enforcement community to understand the vital role it plays in the war on terrorism. Using techniques applicable to the private and the public sector, the book combines academic, research, and practitioner perspectives to establish a protocol for effectively gathering, analyzing, investigating, and disseminating criminal intelligence. The book demonstrates how to recognize the indicators of an impending act of terrorism or mass violence, how to deter an attack, and how to transform information into intelligence to meet community demands for safety and security. New chapters in this third edition focus on source development and their use in investigations, the role of fusion centers, terrorism financing, the handling of classified materials, and the National Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative. The book also discusses pre-incident indicators, the radicalization process, and behavioral traits associated with terrorism. A one-stop resource for the homeland security, intelligence analyst, and investigative professional, this volume arms those tasked with protecting the public with a solid blueprint for combating and investigating crimes associated with terrorism and hate.

In 1973 the National Institute of Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice awarded a contract to the Rand Corporation to undertake a nationwide, two-year study of the effectiveness of police investigative practices. The criminal investigation process in municipal and county police departments was studied by survey, by interviews and observations, and by special data collection. In October 1975, the Rand Corporation published its findings and proposed reforms in three volumes. The principal finding of the research was that, although the solution or clearance of reported crimes is the primary focus of police investigators, most clearances are arrived at through the activities of patrol officers, members of the public, and routine police procedures, rather than investigative techniques. It was further suggested that solutions for only a very small percentage of crimes, concentrated in a few specific crime types, are generated through the use of what has been traditionally thought of as investigative efforts. Rather, it was asserted that much of this traditional investigative effort is applied to crimes which empirical evidence indicates will never be solved. As a result of this finding, along with others on fingerprint processing, the use of information systems, strike forces, victim satisfaction, and post-arrest investigation thoroughness, the researchers suggested a number of reforms intended to result in more effective and efficient investigation activity. When the study was made public, it sparked a debate in the law enforcement community. A critical analysis of the Rand research, and the researcher's response appeared in the July 1976 issue of the police chief. The critical evaluation purported to demonstrate that the Rand study contains 'procedural errors', has a 'fatally limited' data base, and 'presents conclusions that do not follow from the data presented'. In their response, the Rand researchers, while acknowledging some instances of 'imprecise or misinterpretable wordings', contend that no contradictory evidence has been brought forth that suggests their basic conclusions are erroneous. Because of the importance of the issues involved, the National Institute has compiled its report, which includes the original summary of the criminal investigation study, the critical analysis, the researchers' response, and a revised summary prepared by the researchers.
