The Surveillance Vehicle Cooler
For all of you Surveillance Operatives working in hot climates, here is an idea that will keep your surveillance van, car or four wheel drive cool. The system uses ice water circulating through a cooling element. Air is then drawn over the element and circulated through the vehicle. By Mark Gamer

Finding People's Email Addresses
This is a run-down and step-by-step source list of how to find people's email addresses.

Police & Prosecutorial Misconduct Can Equal Wrongful Conviction
After twenty-one years as a private investigator specializing in criminal defense, I wish I could report a decline in police and prosecutorial misconduct. Sadly, it is alive and well in America! By Paul Ciolino

Theft Prevention and Inventory Management – What’s the Connection?
Does your company sell widgets of some sort? From apparel to electronics to tools, if your business physically handles and stores tangible product, then the concept of inventory accuracy is a very familiar refrain. Profitability, customer retention, operational productivity all hinge on reliable inventory numbers. By Lee Schwartz

Outwitting Holders of Hidden Assets
With costs of litigation added to losses suffered which gave rise to the initial lawsuit, Plaintiffs can spend “good money after bad” and end up holding only worthless judgment paperwork when unscrupulous Defendants successfully hide money offshore.By Kent Perkins

Defending the Innocent in Child Sexual
Abuse Cases

A four or five year old takes the stand and states, "He (she) touched my pee pee." In dozens of courtrooms across the country, this scenario is played out again and again. More often than not a judge or jury is swayed by this generally emotionless testimony--testimony that is repeated with the sincerity of a nursery rhyme or a rendition of "What I had for breakfast this morning." It is, indeed, common for a child to be unable to remember what was served for breakfast that morning, or the day before. By Paul Ciolino

Absence of Evidence is Not Evidence of Absence
From the Journal of Forensic Identification By Paul Erwin Kish And Herbert Leon MacDonell

Behavioural Interviewing Techniques
The suspect was sitting in the interview room of Flemington police station listening to my every word. I had arrested John on suspicion for the commission of 25 burglaries in the Flemington area. Now I had to prove it. By Steven Van Aperen

Keeping The Expert Honest
Re-inventing themselves is what many of the self-anointed "experts" are really experts at achieving. Your job as the independent or staff legal investigator is to make sure that your team is not on the receiving end of one of these charades. By Paul Ciolino
