This book is an overall, comprehensive look at the field of crime scene investigations. The book starts, naturally, at the beginning - the very early days, when the tools of criminal investigations were basic and primitive. We then follow the evolution of this important topic all the way to the high-tech approach of today's criminal investigator. From cutting-edge computer programs and fancy gadgets to human intuition and the good old-fashioned notebook and pencil, we cover every tool that could possibly help solve a crime. We'll decipher all the long words, technical terms and confusing acronyms used by crime scene professionals. To make the material more interesting and easy to understand, we've included many hands-on activities and projects that help the readers easily imagine what it's like to be a real crime scene investigator. Once they've actually dusted a crime scene for fingerprints or analysed some handwriting samples, readers may even decide that one day they'd like to become a criminal investigator themselves. Or maybe they'll simply gain a new respect and understanding for the complex tasks involved in solving a crime. Either way, they'll have a much better idea of what goes on at a crime scene - and, more importantly, behind the scenes - before police can arrest, and hopefully successfully prosecute, a suspect. This information may also prove vital should the reader ever witness a crime, happen to come upon a crime scene or serve on a jury for a case in which CSI-related evidence plays a role. Or it may simply allow them to better follow the plot line of their favourite CSI-related TV show. Who knows - maybe they'll be able to solve the crime before the on-screen pros do!
