About The Book - Applied Physics In Policing
This book is designed to assist all those who pursue justice in cases involving collision reconstruction evidence. The book is based on the author’s formal education, his experience in the field, and his experience with the courts. This book is a reference book and was designed with the following goals: To provide police investigators with a scientific foundation of the collision reconstruction tools they are taught; To provide tools to assist investigators in analyzing relatively complex scenarios requiring the use of a series of equations To better prepare the investigator to communicate the analysis of physical evidence; and, To provide a common understanding and language between police, prosecutors, defence attorneys, and engineers. The reader is progressively taken from the motion of vehicles, to the identification of physical evidence, to the recording of physical evidence, to the analysis and communication of the physical evidence. The progression flows easily, and the content is such that it will provide a valuable reference to all those involved in the field of collision investigation.
