QUEST REVIEW CENTER 1550 Espana Blvd. Cor. Lacson Ave., Sampaloc, Manila NOTES ON CRIME DETECTION AND INVESTIGATION CDI-1: FUNDAMENTALS OF CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION – is an art which deals with the identity and location of the offender and provides evidence of guilt through criminal proceedings. INVESTIGATION DEFINED: The collection of facts to accomplish a three-fold aim: a. to identify the guilty party; b. to locate the guilty party; and c. to provide evidence of his guilt. PRIMARY JOB OF AN INVESTIGATOR The primary job of the investigator is to discover whether or not an offense has been committed under the law, after determining what specific offense has been committed, he must discover how it was committed, by whom, where it was committed, when and why it was committed (Cardinal points of Investigation 5W’s and 1H). SIX CARDINAL POINTS OF INVESTIGATION WHAT specific offense has been committed? Nature of crime WHERE crime was committed? Place or location WHEN it was committed? Time and date WHOM it was committed? Persons/s involved WHY it was committed? Reason or motive of Committing the crime HOW it was committed? Manner, method or modus operandi QUALITIES OF A GOOD INVESTIGATOR 1. Perseverance 2. Intelligence 3. Honest 4. Understanding of the people and environment 5. Keen power of observation TRAINING Training, as one of the foundations of investigation, is concededly a vital ingredient in the creation of a total investigator. Experience alone does not make one good investigator. Many who had been hostage to this notion often ended in jeopardy. The ideal conjugal partnership is training and experience. The fusion of the best training and vast experience is a formidable force that can threat even the most sophisticated technology and syndicated crimes. The necessity of training as a purveyor of change builds the investigator’s confidence. It widens his vision for professional growth and strengthens his will to survive and prevail over crises.
