research paper on the role of computers in violent crime

Part I – Field Guide

Prepare a sample Crime Scene Processing Procedures Field Guide, based on the information provided in Chapter 10 of our textbook. The format of this guide should facilitate use at the scene.

Part II – Scenario

You have just arrived at the scene of workplace violence where an individual shot his coworker. Describe, in detail, the steps that you would take to process the digital crime scene. Things to consider: comments from coworkers, contents of computer and cell phone, other digital evidence relating to the incident.
Written reports of no more than five pages are to be prepared in a professional manner using the APA style for your cover page and references. Format and neatness matter, as do spelling and grammar. Use one-inch margins, 12-point fonts, and double-spacing. Put page numbers on all pages but the first. Up to 30% may be deducted for work that does not meet professional standards. Some additional allowance may be made for those students for whom English is not a native language. No allowance will be made for papers that were not spell-checked. If you have trouble with the mechanics of writing, you are encouraged to get some assistance at the Academic Support Center in the Library (x6042). Also, don’t forget that there are excellent resources available through the databases at the College library (see the Reference librarian for assistance).
