Assignment 11: In Chapter 11, Topic 4, we look at the development of specialized investigative teams as a response to crime trends. In at least ONE (1) page, pick ONE (1) of the eleven (11) specialized areas listed in Topic 4. Do some research on one of those specialties and be able to:
(1) describe/define what that specialty does,
(2) what special skills/resources staff in the unit need to possess, and
(3) what types of crimes you think it is best equipped to address.
There are 11 specialties listed: Forensic Identification Section; Traffic Analyst and Accident Reconstruction Units; Criminal Intelligence and Crime Analysis; Criminal and Geographic Crime Profiling; Polygraph section and specialized interview teams; Computer Crime Analysts and Data Recovery; Organized Crime Sections; Gang Crime Unit; Integrated Homicide Investigation Teams; Dedicated Surveillance Units; Community Policing Teams.
For example, if you select Community Police Teams, you will need to describe and define what community policing means, what types of training/resources you think that unit will need to be most effective, and then identify what types of crimes they are best equipped to investigative and/or deter.
