Theft and Burglary Investigations week 3 Discussion 2
You described it well…the silent dread of when might it happen. I am pleased to see you thinking this through without allowing gender or age to alter your decisions. Many agencies do have Detectives on call 24/7 to respond to certain crimes. Those crimes are usually violent or high profile crimes, such as sexual assaults and homicides. I want you to pretend this case will not have a Detective responding to the scene and the first responding officer will be responsible for conducting the preliminary investigation. In your opinion, will the officer detain or arrest this suspect based on his observations?
