Crime Scene Investigation

In line with Peter De Forest

about Crime Scene in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

It would not be an exaggeration to assert that crime scene investigation ranks with the most intellectually challenging and difficult of human activities. It is also one of the most misunderstood. In practice, crime scene investigation is rarely carried out efficiently and effectively. Successful outcomes, when and where they occur, are often fortuitous rather than following from intelligently adaptive plans or designs. There seems to be an inexplicable disconnect in the public's perceptions of the problem of crime scene investigation. In fictional portrayals dating from the Sherlock Holmes stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to the present, the interpretation of physical clues at a crime scene is seen as the epitome of intellectual prowess. Judging from the allocation of expertise and resources, this is a far cry from the importance accorded this activity in the real world today.
