A Crime Solving Toolkit: Forensics in the Caribbean


Up to 2 WeeksUsually despatched within 2 weeks


Unacceptably high murder and crime rates in the Caribbean have captured the attention of the world and Caribbean policymakers, and forensics provides a key tool in prosecuting criminals and reducing crime. Although forensic sciences have been judiciously applied in the Caribbean for decades, the vast majority of forensic publications have focused on North American and Europe. This volume embraces diverse perspectives on forensics within the Caribbean by focusing on disaster victim identification protocols, forensic anthropology, computer forensics, geospatial technologies, shoe-print identification, suicide hangings and forensics linguistics. Desperately needed, this volume provides prescriptive formulas to mitigate the rising crime in the region and is of particular interest to policymakers, lawyers, police officers, anthropologists, computer specialists and interested members of the public.
