Overview

This is a Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) elective Criminal Investigations online training course  for Texas Peace Officers, Jailers, and Telecommunicators.

Criminal 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. 

Please note, the entire course final exam(s), and course evaluation(s) must be completed in order to receive two (2) hours of course credit.
