Learn how major case investigative teams provide increased capabilities beyond any one individual agency. Examine the resource concentration, effectiveness, efficiency, secondary case clearance, networking and politics of major case investigative teams.
A major case investigative team is a collaborative effort involving multiple law enforcement agencies within adjacent or overlapping jurisdictions. Similar to a task force, the MCIT focuses on major crimes such as homicides and violent crimes, and as determined by the governing agencies. A major case investigative team allows for the concentration of investigative resources beyond the capabilities of any individual agency with the common goals of higher case resolution and increased public safety. Law enforcement, crime scene professionals, prosecutors, and social service professionals working to create rapid response resources to incidents of major crimes are encouraged to attend this training.
