Of all the tasks assigned to law enforcement, none is more important than conducting an impartial investigation to bring a suspect to justice. This is the main reason officers have earned the public’s trust over years of service. The quality of an investigation will undergo scrutiny beginning with the supervisor’s review of the initial report and ending with the appeal process. Officers must conduct each investigation with attention to accuracy, detail and professionalism. Officers will establish a reputation in court and in public based upon the quality of their work. This course will identify the key elements of crimes most frequently encountered during a shift to help the officer avoid some common mistakes made in the field.
