INVESTIGATOR RESPONSIBILITIES 2 LP2: Investigator Responsibilities Annie Tow, Special Agent Air Force Office of Special Investigations Minot AFB, ND Interview at 01AUG2019, 10am What information do you record during an investigation? What are the consequences if you inadvertently miss recording information? Agent Tow answered by saying that some of the most important information comes from the interviews conducted during the investigation with the suspect and the victim. These interviews are mandated to be recorded . Interviews with witnesses and people familiar with either the victim or the suspect are not required to be recorded, but she advised that it was always wise to record information as thoroughly and accurately as possible, so that when taken to trial or referenced years later the information would still hold up. Agent Tow said that for any investigation to happen, an investigative plan needs to be made within 14 days of the case opening, then afterwards it is updated monthly. The investigative plan is a complete record of every step that the investigator will take during the handling of the case, to include people who are interviewed, outside correspondence consulted, evidence gathered, notes taken, etc.,. If an investigative plan is not complete, or a step is taken during the investigation that was not part of the plan, then the entirety of evidence collected during the case can be thrown out at trial because it would be considered legally insufficient. How do you identify and process evidence? What is the most difficult aspect of this process?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
