FBI Handbook of Crime Scene Forensics
Publisher: Skyhorse Publishing
The official procedural guide for law enforcement agencies, attorneys, and tribunals submitting evidence to the FBI.
This handbook outlines the proper methods for investigating crime scenes, examining evidence (bullets, computers, hairs, inks, lubricants, ropes, shoeprints, tire treads, weapons of mass destruction, and more), packing and shipping evidence to the FBI, and observing safety protocol at hazardous crime scenes. Also discussed is recording the scene through narrative, photo, video, audio, and sketches.
With a foreword by a forensics expert and criminal justice professor, this is at once a guide for professionals and an introduction for laypeople. FBI Handbook of Crime Scene Forensics reveals the real procedures and practices behind the TV shows and movies—and will be highly informative to anyone with an interest in investigative police work and the legal system.
