Recently Updated for 2021: Texas Supplemental Peace Officer #1018 (TCOLE)
Statewide Texas June 14th Deadline Approaching: Cybersecurity & Malware Awareness for Employees (Texas HB 3834)
This is an OSS Academy® Criminal Investigations online training course offered for Peace Officers, Jailers, and Telecommunicators.
investigations often begin at the location(s) where the crime was
committed. Criminal investigators must be able to identify and collect
items of evidentiary value left at the crime scene, in order to better
piece together events surrounding the crime, and to identify
perpetrators and sometimes victims. These steps are often the most
important efforts undertaken by patrol officers and investigators in
efforts to identify, arrest, and successfully prosecute offenders.
Failure of law enforcement agencies to establish an effective and
efficient crime scene management system can have severe results and may
even include civil or criminal charges against crime scene personnel.
Therefore, it is essential that all officers and investigative personnel
have a solid understanding of professionally accepted crime scene
protocols, in order that their agency can take full advantage of today's
more sophisticated laboratory techniques and technologies. The basis
for a successful and efficient crime scene investigation is within the
grasp of any law enforcement agency, no matter the size.
