Criminal Investigation Community policing: The Present, the Past, and the Future The following concerns are covered in this FREE course:
- How good are we at solving crime in the US? (Hint: it’s not good.)
- What do the detectives do and who are they?
- How and why did we end up in this predicament?
- What should we anticipate for the future?
- And to what extent may investigations be anticipated to benefit from forensics and technology?
We examine the criminal investigative process in the history, present, and future to provide answers to these and other questions.
We provide an accessible and educational summary of the subject. It is written so that everyone may understand it, including novice observers, seasoned researchers, and aspiring academics.
This course has a strong research foundation and is well referenced and cited throughout. It offers some of the most thorough and up-to-date information on the procedure that is currently available.
It DOES NOT instruct how to conduct research. Instead, it imparts knowledge ON the actual research process.
The 58 lectures in the course range in length from five to twenty minutes (about 12 hours total). The six sections of the lectures cover the following topics:
Where are we now?
What do detectives do and who are they?
From Where Did We Come?

Students will learn how to use a HANDY FRAMEWORK to do the following as we move through the sections:
- DETERMINE a crime issue (in terms of the phases of a crime).
- Describe the sources and information that are accessible at each stage of a crime (in terms of space and time).
- UNDERSTAND HOW HISTORICAL DETECTIVE MODELS HAVE ENQUIRED INTO CRIME (to see their strengths and weaknesses).
- MANIPULATE what we have learned to predict how advances in forensics, technology, and a new investigative approach can be used to tackle crime issues in the future.
