A police investigator’s job is not to simply collect evidence. Comparatively speaking, that is the early and easy part of the job. The taxing part comes after much of the evidence has been collected. The investigator must then begin to analyze the facts in combination with the evidence to determine if a crime occurred, what methods were used, and to identify the perpetrators. Rarely in an investigation does all of the evidence point solely in one direction, but even when it does, the investigator must still establish probable cause before charges are filed.
Please note, the entire course final exam(s), and course evaluation(s) must be completed in order to receive one (1) hour of course credit.
