Course Objective

The course features interactive lectures and discussions of actual case histories, videos, and laws specific to homicide investigations. This comprehensive seminar provides instruction in conducting investigations and prosecuting death cases from the start of the investigation through evidence collection, suspect interviews, press conferences, trial testimony, and ultimately conviction. It is purposely designed to provide expert “in-the-field” instruction from the initial crime scene to a successful verdict.

Using actual investigations, this program uses a diverse combination of homicide case studies to provide strategic tactics to establish guilt and prosecute the offenders.  Participants work through cases from the moment of arrival until their conclusion.  This program provides the structure and methods to successfully close cases.
