The Police Investigations topic area furnishes cops with the latest news, information and strategies used in closing a case and putting bad guys behind bars. Whether you are a patrol officer arriving first on the scene or a detective searching for leads on a cold case, this touches on everything that happens between the suspect’s crimes to the final conviction.

He emphasizes the importance of protecting and preserving a crime scene until the experts arrive.
