The work of a crime scene investigator requires stellar organizational skills and razor-sharp attention to detail. Developing these skills is best achieved through hands-on training simulating actual case events. Crime Scene Processing and Investigation Workbook takes students from the classroom to the field and into the lab to explore a range of scenarios they will likely encounter on the job. Exercises presented in this practical handbook include assessing the scene, crime scene photography and mapping, fingerprint evidence, documentation, impression-casting, bloodstain pattern recognition, and advanced techniques for scene processing. The book also examines the actions of the initial responding officer, highlights special scene considerations, and describes the role of crime scene analysis and reconstruction. Designed to complement Gardner’s Practical Crime Scene Processing and Investigation, this manual uses a consistent format throughout to ensure assimilation.

The most important part of a CSI’s (crime scene investigator) job is accurate documentation of properly collected evidence. Documentation tells the story of the crime and can ultimately prove a suspect guilty. Through an array of specific exercises and actual document templates used in practice, Crime Scene Processing and Laboratory Workbook teaches students the proper physical evidence collection and processing techniques which will enable them to master the skills necessary to become a proficient CSI. Building on prior knowledge and facilitating hands-on experience, this laboratory manual allows students to practice the methods, procedures, and techniques associated with forensic science, crime scene investigation, documentation, and evidence handling. What makes this lab manual unique is that it follows a single hypothetical case to show each of the investigative techniques in the context of a real crime. Highlighting the skills and equipment needed for each assignment, the text presents over twenty separate exercises that alternate between investigating physical evidence specific to the crime scene and evidence specific to the laboratory. The book also provides useful forms, including the laboratory submission request, that duplicate real-world experience and demonstrate how to properly collect, record, and submit evidence. This volume is a useful companion to Gardner’s Practical Crime Scene Processing and Investigation and Fisher’s Techniques of Crime Scene Investigation. The exercises are designed to be completed with or without the help of a partner or as a member of a team. The appendices contain supplemental forms and numbered tent cards that can be used during the exercises along with other additional material such as a glossary and instructions on how to accurately write reports.

Did Jesus Christ really exist? If he did exist, did he perform miracles? Did he really die on the cross? Did Jesus rise from the dead? Is Jesus Christ the Son of God? If you have ever struggled to answer any of these questions, this workbook is for you. This workbook serves as a companion piece to the feature film, "The Investigator." Inspired by true events, "The Investigator" follows the story of James Buanacore, a veteran police detective turned high school criminal justice teacher, who is challenged by his students to investigate the homicide of Jesus Christ. The workbook is a powerful teaching tool, providing the perfect way for viewers to continue a more in depth investigation into the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. For non-believers and those who doubt their faith, this book will provide the answers using historical evidence from both Christian and non-Christian sources. For Christians, it will provide the tools to educate skeptical friends and family about the facts behind the Christian faith. To help us with our journey, we've turned to world renowned author and apologist, Dr. Gary Habermas, to present the facts and help us learn the historical truth about Jesus Christ.
