Overview

Since the first and second editions of this book, there have been extensive changes in the private investigative sector. The Internet and technological advances have revolutionized how investigators work cases. Today, private investigators have computer access to diverse sources of information, and communication and photographic technologies have reached levels inconceivable not many years ago. This third edition guides the reader through these new and essential investigative techniques. From the beginning, the authors explain the various needs of the investigator and then show how to apply those abilities. These include problem solving, understanding people, identifying differences, applying laws, understanding and implementing successful interviewing techniques, and identifying exception rules. Also discussed are such areas as report writing, interrogations, locating missing persons, industrial and commercial undercover operations, accident investigations, business and industrial espionage, and legal constraints. Expanded and greatly updated chapters on information technology, modern equipment and methods, optical-related visual aids, VIP protection, and managing a detective agency are provided. In addition, the text is generously illustrated with photos, diagrams, and document examples. This new edition has been prepared with the greatest attention to both textual quality and production details. The book will serve well as both a learning tool and a source of reference. The primary target populations of this book are individuals who desire to become a private investigator, individuals new to the profession, and those who desire to broaden their professional knowledge. Others who will benefit from the information the book provides include insurance professionals, attorneys and paralegals, police officers and other government investigators, and law and criminal justice students.
