Managing the Criminal Investigations Function
Class 6

This 16 hour course is designed for Chiefs and Supervisors and Managers of Criminal Investigation Units.  It is not a basic course in Criminal Investigations but rather a course on how to manage the Investigative function within your agency.  This course allows agencies to understand and manage the forces that impact your ability to solve crimes in your community.  The class addresses most of the contemporary issues that trouble Criminal Investigation Units including:

  •                 Why do I need to "manage" the investigation process?
  •                 What does research show is the best methods for solving crime and increasing clearances?
  •                 How should our unit be organized? 
  •                 Do we need to specialize in types of investigations?
  •                 How many detectives do we need?
  •                 Why do we need "Case Management?"
  •                 What should Patrol be doing and what should CID be doing?
  •                 What schools or what training programs are needed for detectives?
  •                 Are we at risk with our investigation methods?
  •                 How is Brady and the Michael Morton Act affecting Criminal Investigations?
  •                 Should we be using solvability factors?
  •                 Do we need a separate Narcotics Unit?
  •                 Alternatives to serving high risk warrants.
  •                 Using confidential informants.
  •                 Audits and Inspections needed in Investigations Units


Note:  This is not a class on how to better manage the investigation of specific types of crimes for a higher success rate, but rather a discussion of the management of the overall criminal investigations organization and processes within an agency.
