Criminal Investigation in the New Millennium

The Present, the Past, and the Future: A Community Policing Approach

Created by Robert T. Meesig - LtCol, USAF (retired), Ph.D.

"]

Students: 9261, Price: Free

Students: 9261, Price:  Free

This FREE course addresses the following issues:

- How good are we at solving crime in the US? (Hint – not so good~~)

- Who are the detectives and what do they do?

- How did we get into this situation, and why?

- What can we expect in the future?

- And just how much can forensics and technology be expected help investigations?

To find answers to these and other questions, we explore the criminal investigation process of the present, the past, and the future.

We present an overview of the subject in a listener-friendly and informative way. It is scripted to be understood by the casual observer, as well as the experienced investigator and the aspiring academic.

This course is rooted in the research literature and is amply referenced and well-cited. It provides some of the most comprehensive and current information available on the process.

It does NOT teach how to be an investigator. Instead, it teaches ABOUT the investigation process itself.

The course consists of about 58 lectures ranging from five to 20 minutes in length (about 12 hours total). The lectures are divided into six sections addressing the following:

(1) Where are We?
(2) Who are the Detectives and What Do They Do?
(3) How Did We Get Here?
(4) Where are We Going?
(5) Where Do We Want to Go?
(6) The Year “2084.”

To guide us through the sections, students will learn to use a HANDY FRAMEWORK to do the following:

1. IDENTIFY a crime problem (in terms of the phases of a crime).

2. DESCRIBE the availability of crime information and sources in each crime phase (in terms of space and time).

3. UNDERSTAND how the various detective models of the past have investigated crime (to see their strengths and weaknesses).

4. MANIPULATE what we learned to project how developments in forensics and technology, and a new detective model, can address the crime problems of the future.

**This course contains practice tests only and not an actual video training course for any forensic investigator exams.

**It is highly recommended that you do more to prepare for the exam than just taking these few practice tests.

NOTE: The link to the FREE notes/guides is in the welcome email for the course.

You CAN Pass the Forensic Investigator Exam.

Check out these recent reviews from students:

"Awesome value - learned more than in class; An absolute must have." -- Andre R.

"I just passed last night. This course really helps to prepare for the exam. I also really appreciate the time he took to put in detailed explanations for the correct answer." -- James R.

"Great questions, good format. I bought this after I failed V9 and then passed it the second time." --Gregg M.

"Awesome notes. Used the 48 page notes along with the crash course and tool notes. Took all the sample test at least once. I committed myself to one week of intense studying. I did nothing all week but study and study CHFI. Passed the exam one time. This course helped me massively. Trying to write my own notes from the official study guide was frustrating. I used it to fill in where I clarification was needed. Good luck." ---- A.K.

"I've just passed on CHFI v9 exam and I can say this practical course helped me a lot. Through this course, I could assimilate and memorize forensics main concepts and tools. Also, Ken shared his personal notes for the exam, the Crash Study Guide is fantastic. I would say this practical course is great and together with the official course, it's a must-have material for passing the exam. Ken did a great job here. I truly recommend this course." --Eduardo M.

"Thank you for the valuable and highly relevant study material and quizzes. There seemed to be a disconnect between the EC-Council text and the content coverage they determined critical on the exam. It seemed only 60% of what was quizzed was on the exam. This helped fill in the gap." ----- Samuel G.

"Took the tests, studied what I got wrong, and passed the official certification! Great job!" --Michael P.

**All course tests have been updated to add better explanations and to better match the type of content tested on the Forensic Investigator exam.

  • You will get over 300 questions throughout these exams, including a timed 150 question practice exam to simulate the real exam.

  • Free study guides and notes are also available.  These are the same guides and notes that I used to PASS my exam. (please see the course welcome email for instructions on how to get the notes/guides)

Any Security Professional can find their areas of weakness for the Forensic Investigator exam by using the Forensic Investigator Practice Exam Course because it covers the major areas seen on the actual exam, based on my first-hand experience.

  • Are you studying for the Forensic Investigator exam?  If yes, then this course is for you.  

  • Are you just wondering what types of areas are covered on the exam prior to making a decision on whether to take it?  If yes, then this course is for you.

I passed my Forensic Investigator exam and so can you.

Like YOU, I was frustrated with the lack of study materials out there for the exam.

*If all this course did was save you a few hours of studying, so you could spend more time with family and friends, would it be worth it to you?

These practice exams are designed to help you gauge your readiness for the exam.  The latest version of the exam is much more difficult than previous versions and many individuals fail their first time on the exam.  The questions for these tests were created off the knowledge areas seen on the actual exam itself; however, I have not included any actual exam questions in this training.

You will have six (6) exam options: 25 question mini-exams that focus on many of the tools you will see on the actual exam, a 40 question exam that covers many knowledge areas on the real exam (including Dropbox and Google Drive), a 50 question practice exam covering a broad-scope of knowledge, and a full 150 question exam to help simulate the real exam.  All exams are timed to help you with your time management during the actual exam.

I have included the heavier tool testing, based on my studying and exam experience.  You should realistically be scoring 90% or above on all of these practice tests before considering an attempt at the actual exam.  

Complete these practice tests and focus your study on areas of weakness.  As always, feel free to contact me with any questions as you study for your exam.

Investigative Interviewing

An entry level course that equips delegates with the skill set necessary to carry out a basic investigation & interview.

Students: 636, Price: $29.99

Students: 636, Price:  Paid

Interviewing is carried out on a frequent basis across the globe. Investigative interviewing is the narrower band of criminal & disciplinary enquiry although it still connects with the fundamental process of speaking to people.

Often steeped in mystery and conjecture the thought of conducting such a process fills many with fear and trepidation.

This entry level course provides the practical tools to enable you to confidently conduct an investigatory interview with both witnesses and those individuals that may have contravened your organisations disciplinary code or are subject of a grievance and reach a decision that is both fair and lawful.

Used widely across the business community and the public sector the same elements have been adopted by the UK Police.

Ian Kirke is the Managing Director of leading UK Risk Consultants TFS (www.tfsuccess.com).

"TFS is providing Hertfordshire with a bespoke "out-of-custody" interview package to enable us to train all our uniformed response and neighbourhood officers. This training is providing officers with skills in recognising when out-of-custody interviews should be staged, how to stage such an interview, interviewing both cooperative and non-cooperative suspects, and dealing confidently with legal representatives; all in all professionalising and adding a consistency to out-of-custody interviewing in Herts.”

Shane O'Neill, Detective Chief Inspector, Hertfordshire Constabulary

What others have to say:

“As an experienced LP professional I believe that that the TFS approach to interviewing is like a breath of fresh air. The process driven methodology provides a practical framework that can be used to match all investigatory outcomes from low level disciplinary & grievance procedures to complex criminal investigations. An invaluable tool providing a significant ROI for investigators, especially those with limited experience, I highly recommend the programme.”

Gary Tattersall, Group Risk Manager, Jack Wills

“As an experienced investigator working within an ever changing company, time considered for investigations has always proven to be limited. The TFS investigation and interview techniques offer a structured process that is easy to follow, quick to prepare and gets the results required whilst demonstrating a clear understanding of investigations in business and knowledge of employment law. I also liked the approach to the training, particularly with the role-play exercises, it makes it go beyond just theory.”

This is a full banking investigation course. From debt collectors to private investigators to judgment holders and more, learn the tricks of the trade to conduct a bank locate investigation. A few years ago I didn't know much in regards to conducting bank locates. I called in a bunch of favors and was met with silence. I learned that many professionals were subbing out the bank locate work and didn't actually know how to perform the investigation themselves. Through hours of reading and over a thousand dollars in trial and error, I finally was able to develop a successful system. I'm going to save you that time and money and condense it all into a 3 hour course for $199, less than the cost of most bank locates.

This course will combine on screen tutorials with several lectures to teach you how to conduct a bank locate investigation. We're going to talk about traditional and non-tradition methods to find where someone banks. Learn to search Facebook efficiently for this information and take a deep dive into publicly available bankruptcy reports to see not just the banking information, but data points that you may not have thought to check out. You'll be shown how to search a credit report for banking information and how to validate that information. Learn how to conduct a non GLB violation call to local banks to determine if an individual banks with them.

This course is currently accredited in the state of Oklahoma for 3.25 CE hours.

Students: 28, Price:  Paid

Welcome to the fascinating and mysterious world of private investigations. One of the fastest growing entrepreneurial businesses in the United States is the field of private investigators. Not only is it exciting it is also financially rewarding and an easy to enter career for most people.

Desire, hard work, and determination is what differentiates the successful private investigator from the rest of the crowd. Those PI’s that are willing to listen, invest in their future, and become life-long learners are the ones that rise to the top.

This course has six primary topics. While many of these could be taught in their own course, I have chosen to teach them in one to ensure you get the most benefit, the biggest bang, for your buck. These topics resonate with myself as I look back many years ago to when I started as a PI. There were very few resources available to the new private investigator and even fewer veteran private detectives that were willing to give up the secrets to potential competitors.

This course is a simple guide that will walk you through, step by step, as you setup your new private investigator business. From choosing a name for your business to what licenses you will need. From how to set your PI hourly rate to contract essentials. From retainer calculations to working with clients. This class has everything you will need to get you up and running your new private investigations business.
