Product Description

Crime Scene Investigation is a practical book dealing with the management, investigation, and control and processing of crime scenes, or scenes of incident, as they are now called. The book explains the important principles of continuity of possession and the importance of preventing contamination of the scene and evidence. It also focuses on the roles of experts and aids who can help investigating officers to solve complex and varied crimes.

The book pays particular attention to the administrative process involved in the handling of evidence. This includes:
• the responsibilities of the investigating officer who has to deal with the incident
• the various ways in which a scene of incident can be documented
• the handling of people who may be present at the scene
• the proper identification, collection, packaging and dispatch of evidence.

Two of the unique features of the book is the introduction and explanation of a new investigation principle, namely the Lochner principle, and a new search method, namely the Lochner/Zinn search method.
