Descripción del producto
"I am convinced it is essential that all officers and investigative personnel have a solid understanding of professionally accepted crime scene protocols in order that their agency can take full advantage of today's sophisticated laboratory techniques and technologies. This book can play a significant role in helping responsible, concerned individuals realize that objective."
―Eugene R. Cromartie, Deputy Executive Director/Chief of Staff, International Association of Chiefs of Police Major General (Ret.), United States Army Criminal Investigation Command
Reseña del editor
All too often, the weakest link in the chain of criminal justice is the crime scene investigation. Improper collection of evidence blocks the finding of truth. Now in its second edition, Practical Crime Scene Processing and Investigation presents practical, proven methods to be used at any crime scene to ensure that evidence is admissible and persuasive.
Accompanied by more than 300 color photographs, topics discussed include:
- Understanding the nature of physical evidence, including fingerprint, biological, trace, hair and fiber, and other forms of evidence
- Actions of the responding officer, from documenting and securing the initial information to providing emergency care
- Assessing the scene, including search considerations and dealing with chemical and bioterror hazards
- Crime scene photography, sketching, mapping, and notes and reports
- Light technology and preserving fingerprint and impression evidence
- Shooting scene documentation and reconstruction
- Bloodstain pattern analysis and the body as a crime scene
- Special scene considerations, including fire, buried bodies, and entomological evidence
- The role of crime scene analysis and reconstruction, with step-by-step procedures
Two appendices provide additional information on crime scene equipment and risk management, and each chapter is enhanced by a succinct summary, suggested readings, and a series of questions to test assimilation of the material. Using this book in your investigations will help you find out what happened and who is responsible.Ver Descripción del producto

Throughout reading this book, it really bugs me how Mr. Gardner comes off as being arrogant, and whether he feels this way or not, it reads as though he completely detests any lawyers, DAs, or anyone who is not as skilled and experienced as he is in the field of crime scene investigation. He frequently refers to himself in the third-person in anecdotal stories where he seems to always have known better than anyone else (lawyers, DAs, experts, and even other crime scene technicians) about whatever it is he was doing. I am beginning to wonder if the author thinks there is anyone who is not beneath him. There are also several times when he seems to "go off" on "bunny trails" that have nothing to do with the chapter.
The compilation of the book itself also needs some help. As a student, if you are trying to flip to different chapters to search for specific subjects you need to study, unless you have memorized the name of each and every chapter, you will have a difficult time finding what you need. There are NO chapter numbers at the top or bottom of any of the pages. The only time a chapter number is written is on the very first page of that chapter. The chapters also seem to be broken up rather oddly. Instead of having chapters that are about the same length, some of the chapters will have maybe 10 pages ona very particular topic, and other chapters will have over 60 pages and cover a very wide range of topics. For example, instead of having a chapter for fingerprinting, a chapter for impressions, etc., there is one, 62-page, chapter for "basic skills for scene processing", which includes multiple, very detailed, important aspects of crime scene processing. The chapter just before it is a mere 24 pages. I think as a teacher this can make things more complicated, because they end up having to break down chapters, assign specific pages, and tailor their quizzes and assignments to which section of a chapter, rather than which chapters. Not a huge deal, but again, I think the addition of a skilled editor to the team of people working on this book could have helped make this book more user-friendly.
Again, Mr. Gardner sounds like he has a wealth of knowledge and it's wonderful that he wants to pass that on to others. However, the investment of a good editor would be an invaluable addition to the next edition.
