Investigative practices are useful in a range of roles within the criminal justice system and connected to the criminal justice system. Developing theoretical knowledge and practical skills with regard to investigating a criminal event, prepares students with industry relevant skills that are directly applicable to a range of careers within the criminal justice system and outside the criminal justice system as well. Investigative skills are transferrable to other contexts where the ability to gather information, synthesise information and solve complex problems is required.
This course aims to equip students with a range of investigative skills useful for the collection, preservation and presentation of evidence. Concepts relating to types of evidence such a material evidence, circumstantial evidence and witness testimony will be presented to students, along with the various ways to extract this evidence in the context of a criminal event. Students will have the opportunity to develop theoretical knowledge that underpins investigative practices, as well as practical skills by way of applying investigative techniques to decode a crime scene.
