Types of Evidence
Discussion: In this lesson, we have looked at the following types of evidence: direct, circumstantial, inculpatory, exculpatory, corroborative, witness, and hearsay evidence. Pick one (1) type of evidence for your discussion post. Define that type of evidence (including a citation) and then discuss what you believe is a challenging aspect of that type of evidence for the investigator. For example, direct evidence often includes witness testimony. What kinds of issues do you think can arise with witness testimony? Or, can exculpatory evidence can change the direction of an investigation and what impact does this have on the case and the investigator’s theory of the case?
Requirements:
Your initial post should be a minimum of 300 words.

In at least three (3) pages, identify a category of crime, provide a specific example of the elements of the offense from your state (or state of your choosing) and discuss the investigative approaches and choices that an investigator would most likely consider when conducting an investigation.
In your paper:
(1) identify the category of crime that you will be exploring: Crimes Against Persons; Crimes Against Property; or Crimes Against Society;
(2) identify at least ONE statute from your state (or state of your choice) associated with that crime category and explain the major elements of that offense that need to be investigated and proven;
(3) discuss the type of crime scene you may encounter with that type of offense and how you would handle that crime scene – will it be a large complex scene with many witnesses, lots of physical evidence, or a small scene with no witnesses, etc; OR is this the type of crime that requires special investigation techniques like confidential informants, undercovers, surveillance, etc?
(4) discuss the type(s) of evidence you are likely to be collecting from that scene – is it mostly witness statements, or forensic evidence like DNA, fingerprints, computer evidence, etc – and how you would best handle that evidence;
(5) for the type(s) of evidence you are collecting, what are the potential challenges you may be expected to overcome? Is contamination an issue? What types of witnesses/victims to you potentially come across that would potentially cause reliability issues?
(6) do you think the type of crime you are investigating will likely lead to search warrants? If so, what would you be searching for, where would it be, and what level of evidence do you need to obtain that search warrant?
(7) for the type of investigation you have selected, discuss the clearance rate of offense in general (see reading below) and give an opinion as to if that rate can be improved or not. If you believe it can be improved, explain what additional resources or techniques would lead to improvement. If you do not believe the clearance rate can be improved, give an opinion as to why not.
NOTE: If you chose to discuss Crimes Against Society, discuss what you think the biggest challenge is associated with detecting/investigating the type of offense you selected and what types of additional resources or techniques could lead to more successful investigations of that type of crime.

the type(s) of information the warrant must contain.

The experience of a trial can be particularly challenging for crime victims. In one (1) page discuss what are the pros and cons of notifying victims of progress made in their offender’s case?

 Chapter 14 Questions
You learned in this chapter that the key advantage of bivariate regression over correlation is that regression can be used for prediction. Explain this period how is it that regression can be used to predict values not in the data set, but correlation cannot?
Identify the two criteria that a dependent variable must meet ordinary least squares regression to be used?
Does OLS regression place restrictions on the levels of measurement of the independent variables?
Explain the advantage of multiple regression over bivariate regression. What does multiple regression do that bivariate regression does not? Why is this important?
