Why we do what we do.
Investigating a death is one of the most significant and highly charged investigations any investigator can become involved with. The public, in general, and family members in particular, expect a thorough and professional investigation into any death. In the case of homicide, successful identification, apprehension and prosecution of the offender, demands the assignment of skilled personnel.
