What People are Saying About This
NJ Cops, October 2006“Whether you’d like to become a crime scene investigator or simply want to see what it takes, look no further than this book.Like a top-notch forensics expert, author Henry M. Holden traces the path that crime scene investigators follow as they learn and ply their trade. To Be a Crime Scene Investigator provides a behind-the-scenes look that takes readers from application to training, crime scene to lab, revealing the fine points of securing, examining, and processing evidence; identifying victims, and reenacting the crime; conducting police lineups and interviews, and administering polygraphs; and forensics and evidence analysis.”
Midwest Book Review, November 2006
"The crime scene investigator collects evidence, photographs the scene, and uses every particle of evidence to reconstruct eventsbut few books reconstruct the progress of the career of a crime scene investigator. Here's a survey that covers both the process of the investigation and the progress of a career in the field, surveying training, applications of ideas, and methods of processing and locating evidence. Color photos throughout and sidebars of crime-specific detail make for an essential guide."
