5 Day New Detective and New Criminal Investigator Tactics, Techniques, Procedures and Case Management (IV0076)

Full Description

This 5-day training will provide the Tactics, Techniques and Procedures when conducting criminal investigations. no matter the type of crime under investigation. Criminal investigations regardless of the investigation you are conducting require the same fundamentals. Applying determination, sound investigative practices, tactics, techniques and procedures will enhance the investigator’s ability to collect evidence in such a way as to ensure its admissibility in future criminal proceedings.


The strongest cases are those built with circumstantial crime scene evidence, eyewitness identifications and statements of admission from defend-ants. This training will provide the criminal investigator with the understanding and insight into all three.

In any investigation the lead investigator will be charged with the responsibility of the investigation and will ultimately be held accountable for the integrity and success of the completed investigation. Participants will be made aware of the proper methods of ensuring that the scene is properly processed and documented.

This documentation includes written reports, photographs, measurements, sketches, and area canvas. Crime scene searches and seizures, the 4th Amendment and related case law will be discussed.

Eyewitness identifications play an important role in our criminal justice system; both by helping officers identify suspects during an investigation and by helping juries determine guilt at trial. It is therefore crucial that the procedures law enforcement officers follow in conducting those identifications ensure the accuracy and reliability of evidence elicited from eyewitnesses. Proper policy and procedures and best practices will be discussed

Distinguishing homicide from other unusual deaths: Police officers are called to investigate approximately 17,000 homicides a year. They are called to twice as many suicides each year. In many cases, it may be required that investigators treat a death as a homicide until it has been ruled by a medical examiner or coroner to have been caused by something else. While law enforcement investigators are not expected to develop the same expertise as a pathologist performing an autopsy, it is critical that investigators be able to identify evidence at the scene and later at autopsy which would be an indicator as to the cause, manner and mechanism of death minal proceedings.
