Assignment 1: erroneous information in criminal investigation

 

Many investigators and psychologists focus on the minutiae of the case and easily lose track of the larger picture. On the other hand, it is also very important to weigh the evidence and decide what data is more important and should be examined further and what data may be placed aside.

 

Using the module readings and the Argosy University online library resources, respond to the following questions:

 

  • What are the possible sources of error in the information collected during a police investigation?

 

·                 What are some of the factors that may lead to false confessions?
