More and more often in court, investigators and uniformed officers, especially in small jurisdictions, are being challenged about their expertise, experience, and if they have any kind of training or certification in certain areas of law enforcement.

Since most states have statutory requirements for post-mortem exams in any suspicious death, it is essential for any investigator who will be preparing a case for a prosecutor to take to court, to understand and employ sound, proven techniques in the investigation of death cases (this is to include suicides, accidental deaths, and unattended natural deaths.

In all aspects of law enforcement, credibility of officers has come under attack unlike any other era in our nation’s history. The only way to survive this relentless attack, which is often rooted in misinformation is to get better and more professional at what we do.

The class objectives are:

1) The student will understand the statutory requirements that most medical examiners use involving death investigation and medical examiner/coroner involvement.

2) The student will be introduced to the basic structure of a homicide “squad”, and how “lead” investigators conduct investigation with the cooperation of a team or a partner.

3) The student will learn how to use a “lead sheet”, as well as the importance of organization and keeping separate notes on each case.

4) The student will understand crime scene security and integrity, and how to prevent contamination and/or unauthorized persons from entering the crime scene.

5) The student will understand the correct, thorough way to conduct an area canvas, and the documentation of same.

6) The student will learn crime scene searches, as well as the examination of dead bodies, to obtain evidence. At least two hours of class time will be delineated for presentation of different types of trauma (i.e., sharp wounds, gunshot wounds, blunt, etc.) and interpretation of same.

7) Students will learn different markers to help identify suicide deaths as opposed to accidental and homicide deaths.

8) Students will gain specific knowledge about the challenges of suicide cases.
