The book is clearly focused on the techniques for handling crime scenes from the role of the first officer attending through the to the specialist personnel who may be called to deal with specific evidence types. Clearly structured to enhance student understanding, methods covered include, dna-rich samples, fingerprints, toolmarks and impressions.
