Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a must read for any business owner that is dealing with theft or other security issues. It is also a great read for investigators that deal with invstigating criminal activities and conducting undercover investigations in the workplace.
The process of the "what, how, who, where, when, and why" concepts were also an interesting read. However the real world background investigations and surveillance investigations sections were a joke. This book is a great read but, in my opinion, is not something that should be used as a guide for any investigator starting out in the field and for anyone looking for general topics of investigations because "newbies" in the field will receive inaccurate information on how real world investigations (especially surveillance) are conducted.

If this book would be titled to make me believe that it was for corporate investigations and/or corporate and criminal case solving it would receive 5+ stars from me. However, since it leads me to think that this book is for overall investigations it only receives three stars.

This book is an excellent resource for someone who either has some familiarity in the field of Private Investigations, or for someone who is entering the field and needs to become more familiar with terminology and techniques. The book focuses an entire section on the "Who What When Where Why and How's" for investigations, which I found to be very informative. The information is accurate and is of such high quality that this book is used as recommended reference material for some State Written Examinations for Private Detective Licenses. That should say it all.

Format: Hardcover
I really enjoyed this book. I have been investigating crimes in the public sector for almost a decade. This book gave me some new ideas and is a great resource for those transitioning to the private sector or just getting into it. I found this book to be very informative and would recommend it to anyone that is going into the field or is already in the field of private investigations.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
"The Process of Investigation" is an excellent reference for both the new and the experienced investigator. The book is filled with useful information, case examples and formats that can be directly applied to your own investigative work.

"The Process of Investigation: is divided into five major sections:
1. Fundamentals of Security Investigation
2. Methods of Security Investigation
3. Building a Case
4. Applying Investigative Strategies
5. Technological and Specialized Investigative Techniques

Although I have been involved in security and investigations for many years, I still found "The Process of Investigation" to be a very useful reference, and one which I now use when teaching investigation classes.

Highly Recommended!
