AN INSIDE LOOK INTO INVESTIGATING THE MOST VIOLENT SUB-CULTURE IN THE WORLD

Once an offender is behind bars, many people believe that he is no longer a threat to society. However, the felonious activities of confined inmates reach out into society every day. These inmates run lucrative drug operations, commit fraud, hire contract murders, and commit a multitude of criminal offenses from inside the walls of our prisons. This book provides an in-depth resource guide to the relatively new field of corrections investigation.

Illustrating the differences between street and prison investigations, Practical Criminal Investigations in Correctional Facilities provides a detailed list of how tos as well as numerous captivating case histories and photographs of actual crime scenes and evidentiary items. Chapters on intelligence gathering, undercover operations, and the use of confidential informants will aid you in the complex crimes that sometimes even involve officers and civilians. The book also covers legal aspects such as warrants, court preparation, and testimony to help you take a case from investigation to prosecution.

Prison investigators must be able to respond effectively to every crime imaginable, from a grizzly homicide to a complex fraud case. Whether you're a long-time administrator or a novice criminal justice professional, Practical Criminal Investigations in Correctional Facilities gives you sound advice on how to handle crime in a community in which 100% of the population are convicted felons.
