Crime Scene Management and Evidence Recovery is a must-have for first responders and crime scene investigators alike. Featuring step-by-step guidance on the techniques involved in crime scene management and evidence recovery, alongside hands-on advice and aide-memoirs from crime scene investigators, the second edition also includes clear scientific explanations and everyday examples for the non-specialist to recognise the importance difference that first responders can make. Whilst crime scene investigators are trained to undertake more detailed forensic examination, the actions of first responders can have a fundamental impact on the success of an examination. By increasing the awareness of forensic aspects of a crime scene investigation, this book ensures that crime scene officers are better equipped to make informed decisions about protecting and preserving scenes and recovering items for evidence. It also helps all police and forensic professionals to develop their understanding of the various analysis techniques available, as well as the pitfalls to avoid. The fifteen chapters offer structured advice on the techniques involved in the preservation, recovery, packaging, and storage of different evidential types such as fingerprints, DNA, glass, footwear, paint, and fibres. An overview of the science behind the various types of forensic analysis is presented alongside the relevant legislation, to reinforce the value of accurate crime scene management within the duration of an investigation, and practical tips, scenarios, and knowledge checks help to test understanding and root best practice within everyday policing. The Blackstone's Practical Policing Series covers a range of topical subjects of vital importance in today's policing arena. Each practical guide contains clear and detailed explanations of the relevant legislation, accompanied by practical scenarios, illustrative diagrams and useful checklists. Packed with a wealth of information, the Blackstone's Practical Policing Series ensures you have ready access to the tools you need to take on any policing challenge.
