Training Provided by ProFirst Training

Police departments across the country do an excellent job preparing officers for
patrol, but we tend to place new detectives in their new role with very little preparation. This course fills that gap. This course is specifically designed for new or recently-assigned investigators. It provides an initial orientation to the role of criminal
investigator and the basic aspects and procedures of conducting an investigation.
(24 hrs.)
Training topics will include:
• Case management
• Crime scene examination
• Surveillance techniques
• Warrants overview
• Courtroom testimony
• Plain clothes enforcement
• Conducting photo lineups
• Obtaining statements
Upon completion, attendees will be prepared to assume the role of detective with a
solid foundation upon which to build. This is a three-day class.
