Abstract: Undergraduates and professional investigators engaged in a mock industrial investigation to test the effect of a priori knowledge on investigative decision making and the effectiveness of a “tunnel vision education” debiasing intervention. Our findings reveal that prior knowledge about worker or equipment safety biased undergraduate and professional-investigators’ decision-making in assigning cause for the industrial event. However, bias was effectively reduced with “tunnel vision education”. Professional investigators demonstrated a greater sophistication in their investigative decision making compared to undergraduates. The similarities and differences between undergraduate and professional responding are discussed.

Abstract: Undergraduate student-investigators investigated four videotaped “crimes,” each witnessed by an independent witness/participant. Each witness saw a good or poor view of the culprit, and was tested on either a target-absent or target-present photo lineup. Variables analyzed include the effects of witness viewing condition (good vs. poor), response (choose suspect, choose foil, reject lineup, and response latency on investigators’ confidence in the witness. As the first study of this kind to test four witnesses per investigator, possible order effects will be examined, and the door will be opened to compare student-investigator performance with that of real police investigators.

3. Wells, William. "Challenges with Investigating Sexual Assaults: Evidence from Case Files and Interviews with Investigators" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-10-15 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p666624_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: The investigation of sexual assaults presents many challenges that are unique to this crime. Describing these challenges presents the opportunity to understand variables related to successful case resolution and to identify areas where improvements can be made. The findings described here are based on multiple data sources, including criminal case files and interviews with sex crimes investigators, from the Houston (TX) Police Department. The challenges investigators face include the lack of useful forensic evidence, victims who are often perceived to be non-cooperative, concerns about victim credibility, and the lack of specialized training.

Abstract: Multiple forms of innovative cyber crime have emerged in the recent years. This type of criminality can include, but are not limited to, the following: digital piracy, identity theft, financial theft, computer hacking, embezzlement, and espionage. Moreover, cyber crime can also include the production and possession of child pornography, or online communication leading to the sexual victimization of a minor. Due to this emergence of several types of cyber crime, law enforcement agencies are spending more time and resources to fight this type of crime. With data obtained from a mail survey to law enforcement agencies, the present study will discuss the current types of cyber crimes encountered by law enforcement agencies and identify the departmental characteristics that increase the likelihood of having a designated task force/departmental unit.

Abstract: This paper uses an experimental design to investigate the processing of social events within the Arabic language culture, and differences in event processing between American and Arabic language cultures. We use multilevel data that enable us to investigate the degree of cultural consensus in event processing within our Arabic-speaking sample. These data allow us to offer the first investigation into one of the core assumptions of affect control theory – the assumption that affective responses to social events are culturally shared. The results of hierarchical linear modeling suggest little variation between people in event processing, and do not support the need for different equations for men and women. . This paper is the first to estimate full impression change equations for the Arabic language and compare them to US English We find Arabic equations are simpler than the US English equations and that there are key differences across culture for the effects of behavior. For example, in the Arabic equations nice behaviors make actors seem more powerful, while the reverse is true in the US English equations. We conclude by suggesting verification studies are needed to determine the viability of these equations for future investigation.
