DUE SATURDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2020 at 6:00 PM 





This assignment will require you to apply course concepts from the lessons for Week # 11 – SURVEILLANCE; Week # 12 – UNDERCOVER INVESTIGATION AND INFORMANTS; and Week # 14 – SEARCH WARRANTS, and the readings in the textbook: Chapter 6, pages 116-120 and 120-124. Include in your discussion the following concepts:   

  • Types of Surveillance 
  • Undercover Investigations 
  • Informants 
  • Application and Execution of Search Warrants 


Continuing the hypothetical case from Assignment # 2, you are the case detective pursuing the investigation of a homicide on the campus of NJCU. 

Having developed Basic Leads, completed Neighborhood Canvasses, and conducted Background Investigations on the victim and emerging suspects during the Critical Period, you are now in the midst of the Continuing Investigation and  have focused on a Prime Suspect. 

The suspect has been identified as John Smith. Smith is a former student at NJCU. He last attended classes in the Spring 2020 semester. Smith has been linked to the victim, Linda Jones as a former boyfriend. The two dated briefly in the Spring of 2020 having met as classmates at NJCU.  

Smith has a troubled past, having an prior arrest record for assault and narcotics offenses. He dropped out of classes following the Spring 2020 term. According to friends and family he dated Ms. Jones for a couple of months in what developed into a stormy relationship, with frequent arguments and periodic threats of domestic violence. The victim broke off the relationship in July of 2020, although the suspect attempted to reconcile on numerous occasions. In interviews with past associates and acquaintances of Smith, you have discovered similar past patterns of behavior. You have also learned that Smith is obsessed with flowers, having given them frequently as gifts to former girlfriends.  In consultation with the Narcotics Task Force, you have also learned that Smith is suspected of being involved in continuing drug distribution activity. 

With this information in mind, you have decided to focus your investigation on John Smith. After an initial informational interview in which he was evasive and generally uncooperative, you have strong suspicions but have decided that you want to develop a strong foundation of Probable Cause for your case by gathering more supporting evidence before bringing him in for a formal interrogation and possibly charging him with the crime. You are still awaiting laboratory results from  the crime scene investigation. It should be noted that the victim’s purse and cell phone have not yet been found. You are now going to monitor Smith’s activities  with the objective of linking him to the crime and finding incriminating evidence against him. 

How would you proceed with this investigation to bring it to a conclusion?
