Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Behind the convenience store, in full view of a broken surveillance camera, a camping chair and a blood-stained blanket sit abandoned in the urban blight. A passerby peeks over the police tape and proclaims that the suspect got him three times in the back and once in the chest. But that is almost certainly not what happened. #2 Erika Harden is a civilian crime scene investigator for the Baltimore Police Department. She works nights, and is usually the first person at a crime scene. She uses a tablet to record the details of her cases, and collect evidence for analysis. #3 A tablet app for crime scene investigators, CrimePad, organizes observations, evidence, and sketches. It creates an electronic record that assists with future reconstructions. #4 Photography is a significant part of crime scene investigation. It is not only used to capture the correct compositions, but also to take photos that are high resolution, focused on the correct items, and free of blur.
