Much of the daily work of law enforcement officers, prosecutors and criminal court judges is controlled by hundreds of decisions issued by the US Supreme Court over the past few decades. Keeping up with all of the principles governing police searches and seizures, interrogation of suspects and eyewitness identification procedures has been a daunting challenge — until now! Introduction to Criminal Evidence brings together in a single volume all of the important Supreme Court rulings affecting these highly-refined areas of law. More importantly, the author and criminal justice instructor, Devallis Rutledge, presents these court opinions in an easy-to-understand format by the use of plain-English explanations and examples. Authoritative and comprehensible, this book summarizes, cites or quotes from 433 Supreme Court decisions and simplifies the concepts for the practicing professional. Mr. Rutledge’s long and distinguished career in the law enforcement field — as police officer, prosecutor, civil liability litigator, academy instructor, law school professor and author of eleven criminal justice books — makes him uniquely qualified to review the vast body of constitutional law bearing on criminal investigations, and to distill the guiding principles in language that makes sense of even the most complicated topics.

Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis is a unique work centered on the Deductive Profiling method developed by the author. Deductive Profiling is different from other forms of profiling because it centers the process on forensic evidence and does not involve the use of averaged, statistical profiles. It approaches each criminal incident as its own universe of behaviors and relationships. Criminal Profiling includes a thorough rendering of the features of the deductive profiling method, an overview of the legal aspects involved in profiling, and an exploration into specific profiling issues that arise in different types of serial crime. It also includes the author's unique analysis of the Whitechapel Murders (Jack the Ripper) of 1888 and the JonBenet Ramsey homicide of 1996. Criminal Profiling is a perfect companion for students and professionals in the law enforcement, mental health, criminological, and legal communities. Key Features * A unique approach--centered on the author's Deductive Profiling method * Addresses related issues, such as ethics, clinical perspectives, and the essential role of the task force * Provides a unique analysis of the Whitechapel Murders (Jack the Ripper) and the JonBenet Ramsey case * Boasts the support of the world's leading forensic authors and profilers (Saferstein, Lee, Gebeth, Hare, and Teten) * Written in a style accessible to a wide audience--from the detective performing hands-on casework to the academician in the classroom
