The Art Of Investigation
Author: Chelsea A. Binns
Publisher: CRC Press
Release Date: 2019-12-09
Pages: 170
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Art of Investigation examines the qualities required to be a professional, thorough, and effective investigator. As the title suggests, it delves into more than the steps and procedures involved in managing an investigation, it also covers the "soft skills" necessary to effectively direct investigations and intuit along the way. The editors and contributing authors are the best in their field, and bring a wealth of real-world knowledge and experience to the subject. There are several publications available on the nuts-and-bolts of the process and stages of an investigation. That ground has been covered. However, little has been published on the investigative skills required, the traits necessary, and the qualities endemic to an inquisitive mind that can be cultivated to improve an investigator’s professional skill-set. Each chapter discusses the applicability of the traits to the contributor’s own work and experience as an investigator. In doing so, the contributors provide a story—or set of stories—from their personal experience, which demonstrates a given trait and its importance in the course of their investigative work and career. This will be first-hand experience that will serve to help any investigative professional in the course of their work. The case examples included throughout are sometimes surprising, but always engaging and insightful. An investigator must keep an open mind above all else, and this book will "lift the veil" on the inner workings of an investigation, in addition to the thought processes and inner monologues of an investigator as part of that process. Key Features • Chapters highlight the qualities and traits—the "soft skills"—that are required, and which can be improved over time, to be a thorough investigator. • A veritable "Who’s Who" of renowned investigative experts lend their personal expertise and experience to this how-to manual for investigators. • A unique approach is applied and provides self-help advice for both new and experienced investigative and security professionals. • The book focuses on the learned, acquired, and intuitive skills of investigation—a nuanced but essential aspect of the investigative skill-set. The Art of Investigation will be a welcome addition to any investigator’s toolkit and will also be of interest to students in criminal justice, security, and Homeland Security programs, security consultants, corporate and private security professionals, and the legal community.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Criminal investigation has a high profile in the media, and has attracted widespread interest. Within the police it has been a rapidly developing field.

It looks systematically at the purpose and role of criminal investigation; the legal, policy and organizational context in which criminal investigation takes place; the evidence and information that criminal investigators seek; the process and methods of criminal investigation; the knowledge, techniques and decision making abilities that practitioners require to carry out criminal investigations; how and why it is that some crimes are solved and some are not; the supervision of criminal investigation; and a review of some of the key contemporary issues that have a bearing on criminal investigation. Criminal Investigation will be essential reading for both policing practitioners (student police officers as well as officers taking higher levels of CPD within the police service) and students taking courses in criminal investigation, forensic sciences and investigation, police studies and police science, and other courses where a knowledge of criminal investigation is required.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The trust of a company by its customers is one of the most important ingredients in a company's success. Central to that trust is the company's ability to effectively police itself. Another foundation of success is conducting internal investigations and imposing discipline in a manner that employees find trustworthy and consistent with its values. But what happens when someone reports an incident of actual or potential employee misconduct? Does the company respond to the report to investigate it, remedy it or learn from it? Is the responsibility to investigate the report delegated ad hoc to a human resources manager or in-house attorney to resolve in addition to their regular duties? A robust investigations process is not about good corporate citizenship. Investigations furnish knowledge. The process of knowledge management determines what we know about our company's risks and influences how that information can be applied. This information lets a company manage risk effectively. The products of the investigative process should be a practical and personal piece of advice to executive management. The investigation goal must be to prevent future damage to the company by using investigation findings as a form of organizational intelligence -- rather than rebuilding it after the damage is done. The economics of capitalism and private enterprise favor risk taking. But the only way to accept a risk is if that decision is an informed one. A company must maximize its business success while eliminating or reducing unacceptable legal and financial risks. Identifying and addressing those risks through investigations places the process squarely within the business' fundamental purpose. So why doesn't every company adopt this approach? It may be that they think the company does not have the time, personnel and resources to conduct investigations in an organized manner. Executive management may think that the value of the investigation is limited to substantiating the misconduct of a single employee, and that the business leaders are already certain of his guilt. It may also be to "let sleeping dogs lie," and ignore problems that are known to exist but which are seen as too disruptive and costly to fix. It may be a lack of imagination to see the value. It may be that they are intoxicated by their own high-minded ethics message to consider anything else. True, many companies have historically staffed corporate-security departments or hired lawyers to look into allegations of wrongdoing, but these are not business processes with a focus on corporate counseling. There is a world of difference when you use the investigation process as a way to improve business processes and as a risk-management tool than if you think small and use it only as a way to prove that a discrete act of misconduct occurred. A business case with its own value proposition can be made for a workplace investigations unit. A properly prepared and executed investigation gives the business an advantage. Risks are identified and addressed. Dishonest employees are caught. Restitution can be attempted. But to do this, you need to know how to embed the workplace investigations unit in your company's culture and this applies even to those professionals in human resources and legal departments who freelance investigations as a business process. The ultimate value of a workplace investigations unit depends on its seamless integration in the business. The smoother the practice blends into the business routine, the easier it is to sustain. This book examines management techniques and processes to create a workplace investigations unit. It is intended as a guide for building and running a successful and valuable corporate resource. Attention is also directed to establishing investigative protocols and practices that will survive the scrutiny of business leaders
