The initial response to any major crime is essential for a successful outcome of that case. These responses typically require a careful and coordinated effort among different officers, detectives, and agencies. An inadequate response can mean valuable evidence and critical leads lost forever.
This course is designed to provide participants with the skills, knowledge, techniques, and abilities to successfully respond and begin an initial investigation of any crime scene while avoiding common pitfalls. Focus is on crime scene entry, protection, and control; coordination of the investigation; competent interview and investigation techniques; and trial and post-arrest activities.
Additionally, this training is designed to meet the needs of decision and policy makers, supervisors, and officers leading major investigations (i.e., homicide, police-involved shootings, and media sensitive incidents).
