Crime Scene Management is an accessible introduction to the common forms of evidence that may be encountered at a scene of crime and the techniques used for recovery of that evidence. The book is clearly focused on the techniques for handling crime scenes from the role of the first officer attending through to the specialist personnel who may be called to deal with specific evidence types. Clearly structured to enhance student understanding, methods covered include, DNA–rich samples, fingerprints, toolmarks and footwear impressions. Later chapters move on to consider examples of specialised scenes such as arson and vehicle crime. The content of each chapter can be tested with self–assessment questions to reinforce student understanding.

Written for undergraduate students studying forensic science courses, Crime Scene Management will also be of interest to scene of crime officers, police officers and legal professionals as well as students taking courses in criminalistics and law.

  • Written in conjunction with experienced practitioners
  • Supplementary website to include figures from the book and further references
  • Suitable for delivery in a modular course.
  • Chapters written by a team consisting of experts and academics to ensure an accessible and well–informed text.

Review:

"What is extremely good about this book is that it poses a series of self assessment questions at the end of each topic and provides a comprehensive list of further reading. There is also an associated website linked to this book on which are posted answers to the self assessment questions and high resolution images to support the text in the book. In summary this is an excellent text book for undergraduate students and those about to start the role of a Crime Scene Examiner without any prior knowledge of the subject." ( Finger Print Whorld, March 2011)

"Crime Scene Management: scene specific methods is an appropriate text for the targeted audience. I would recommend its use as a primer for first year undergraduate teaching in forensic science, crime scene management and criminology." ( Reviews, December 2010)"This is a very good basic introductory book which is well written, practical, readable and reliable.... Of significant interest to all who deal with criminal cases." ( The Journal Online, November 2009)

"This is a very good basic introductory book which is well written, practical, readable, and reliable, and would be valuable to the practitioner because its limited content focuses on areas regularly dealt with in the courts." (Law Society of Scotland, November 2009)

Synopsis:

Crime Scene Management: Scene Specific Methods is an accessible introduction to the common forms of evidence that may be encountered at a scene of crime and the techniques used for recovery of that evidence. The book is clearly focused on the techniques for handling crime scenes from the role of the first officer attending through the to the specialist personnel who may be called to deal with specific evidence types. Clearly structured to enhance student understanding, methods covered include, dna-rich samples, fingerprints, toolmarks and impressions. Later chapters move on to consider common scenes such as burglary, fire and vehicle crime. Included with the book is an interactive CDROM that highlights many of the methodologies covered in the book with video footage of the evidence gathering technique in action. The book can be used as a stand-alone but the material included on the CD will enhance student understanding of the subject. This is a great opportunity for Wiley to publish the first book in this area.There are currently no other texts with a UK focus that cover this subject area and yet all undergraduate students taking a Forensic Science degree have to cover this aspect of the course.

The additional 'extra' of the CD will certainly enhance sales opportunities and ensure that the students are getting a whole package consisting of the book, CD and accompanying website.
