Known for its accessibility, CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION delivers a field-based approach to modern investigative principles and practices that is strongly grounded in current research. Demonstrating techniques and practical applications, the eleventh edition introduces established tools, practices, and policies alongside the latest innovations in technology and science to give readers a broad perspective of criminal investigations today. Topics covered include D.N.A. evidence, terrorism and homeland security, standards of proof for stop vs. search/arrest vs. conviction, cybercrime, crimes against children, forensics and physical evidence, investigative photography and sketching, identity theft, white-collar crime, and ethics, among others. What’s more, the MindTap that accompanies this text helps students practice and master techniques and key concepts while engaging them with video cases, career scenarios, visual summaries, and interactive labs for exploring investigative techniques.
"In my opinion, Hess' CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION has always been the most comprehensive textbook for criminal investigation. It provides all the basics associated with any criminal investigation and then provides detailed, in-depth explanation of the evidence and procedures involved in the investigation of specific crimes."
— Joanie Housewright, Texas Women's University
