To do so, the Counterterrorism Division was produced. The Counterterrorism Division collects, analyzes, and shares information and critical intelligence with other federal agencies and departments as well as law enforcement agencies throughout the country. Since the FBI is so important to our country’s defense, it is important to have the best people for the job. That is why there are several requirements that a potential agent must meet before being allowed to join the agency. Some of those requirements are: 1.
5 Summary Pg. 6 Bibliography Pg.7 EARLY HISTORY We all have seen the letters FBI, the powerful sound of these three letters. The Federal Bureau of Investigations also known as the FBI.

Should Police Officer’s Wear Body-Mounted Cameras? Matthew Salzman Information Literacy 260 The technology has been around for quite some time. But since the recent fatal shootings and mistreatment of potential criminals, the idea has gotten traction on a national level. Police conduct has come under scrutiny and has become a household discussion topic. Following the death of Michael Brown, a petition commonly called the Mike Brown Law was written to the White House -- proposing a law that would require all state, county, and local police to wear a camera.
Information on the UCR and NCIC Tabitha Ellsworth Policing in America Individual work week 2 In this paper I will be describing what the Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) are and how they are used. I will also be describing what the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) is and what its purpose is. I will being going in to depth about both of this topics to inform you better of why we need that and how they benefit our legal system when solving crimes. The Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) is official data on crime in the United States, published by the FBI. The purpose of the UCR program is to provide a nationwide view of crime based on the submission of statistics by law enforcement agencies throughout the country.
The Innocence Project has six full-time attorneys and nearly 300 active cases. It is an exhaustive process to decide which cases should be accepted and worked. How does a conviction get overturned?

Just and 1970 they have established that they would spend within five years, 30 million to support major crime fighting strategy of our police department. The end result in 20 years have added to the growing body of scientific knowledge about policing that exist today. Today under that and N IJ and that BJ F Federal support for the criminal justice research and evaluation continue and are both a part of the justice system. In 1984 that Congress created the OJP. Which in turn provide Federal leadership to develop the nation capacity to prevent and control crime.
Professional Ethical Standards of a Crime Scene Investigator Renee’ A. Alexander ADJ 235 June 18, 2011 Timothy P. Kelly, Jr. A criminal justice job that I have always been interested in and have considered was a crime scene investigator. Yes the many television shows that involve these types if jobs make it seem interesting and fun, but I actually believe that this is something that I really could do. A crime scene investigator is responsible for taking a crime scene no matter how complex it may be and figure out what happened based on the evidence found. They use many different types of equipment to research and analyze the area a crime has occurred and get the answers needed. They must follow very precise and orderly protocol when collecting or gathering evidence from the crime scene so it can be tested, and get the best results.
(Page 7 ch1) One contribution is the journal he has written is about the improved methods of scientific crime detection and this still reports today. The second contribution is his treatise written about scientific disciplines in the field of criminal investigations. (Page 8 ch 1) Karl Landsteiner figured out how to divide blood into groups and today there are four different groups A,B,AB,O. Then Leone Lattes takes this information and puts it to work with figuring out the types of blood with dried blood. (pg10 ch1) The first person to apply the principals of forensic science was Edmond Locard, he began in the attic of the Lyons police department.
Careful, thorough investigation is key to ensuring+ the potential physical evidence is not tainted or destroyed or potential witnesses overlooked. I am sure many agencies have programs in crime scene processing, the level of training and resources available varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.” (Reno, 2000) Assembling a set of guidelines and conducting preliminary investigation for criminal cases are best described by the FBI. The initial responding officer(s) shall promptly, yet cautiously, approach and enter crime scenes, remaining observant of any persons, vehicles, events, potential evidence, and environmental conditions. A FBI report issued in 2005 details that general crimes are outlined into three graduated levels of investigative activity. These activities are the checking of initial leads, preliminary inquiries, and full investigations.
Government agencies use these reports to document crime and do further research on crime in the nation. After a few years of reporting with the first program created, the UCR or Uniform Crime Reporting Program, another program had evolved from that having the FBI designated to coordinate the latest program, NIBRS or the Nation Incident Based Reporting System. With the UCR you could not differentiate between misdemeanor and felony crimes, so the NIBRS was created to gather more in depth and detailed crime data. The NIBRS collects detailed data on every single crime occurrence. Along with those programs came the NCVS or National Crime Victimization Survey, this survey is a self-reporting survey which victims report their own incidents.
