Investigating Made Simple
By Garry Maher
Acumen Learning Pty Ltd is pleased to announce the Third Edition (2007) of the very popular government-endorsed textbook Investigating MADE SIMPLE by former police officer, corporate trainer, and academic Garry Maher.
This edition has been published in response to numerous requests from academics, trainers, students, and investigation practitioners following the rapid sell-out of the previous editions of this unique book.
Garry’s book is the result of his extensive experience and research into contemporary investigation best practice and a well-recognised need in the investigation profession for a comprehensive, easy to understand guide to the principles and practice of complaint and incident investigation.
Garry has taken great pains to convey to the reader ‘I can relate to that’ approach to his writing style. His minimal use of ‘legalese’ together with a clever mix of cartoons, clichés, and real-life anecdotes, makes for entertaining, yet informative reading. Garry’s reader-friendly style of writing, humour, practical hints and his skill in explaining complex issues in a logical and realistic way will appeal to professionals, students and people interested in the investigation process.
Investigating MADE SIMPLE is a reflection of Garry’s approach to education and training: reminding people of knowledge they already have and expanding that knowledge.
The book takes the reader through from having what it takes to be an investigator, knowing the different types of investigation, the legal basics, getting started and getting results to the closing down and preparing the report and brief of evidence.
