Abstract: “Analysis of Digital Financial Data” reviews some of the tools and methods an investigator can use in conducting investigative analysis and identify suspicious financial transactions. “Digital Evidence” highlights the importance of not only collecting various types of digital evidence but also having up-to-date procedures for its proper handling, archival, and maintenance, so as to ensure its suitability for presentation in court. “An Overview of the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008” (ADAAA) addresses changes in how the fundamental determination should be made of whether an individual has a disability, and it clarifies that the ADA continues to protect only those able to perform the essential functions of the job, allowing for employers to impose hiring and employment standards that are job-related and consistent with business necessity. “Child Abductions: Known Relationships Are the Greater Danger” advises that although abductors can vary in age, race, or physical characteristics, the FBI has concluded that the majority of child abductors in their cases, in CARD team deployments, and AMBER Alerts have a relationship with the child victim. “Building an Effective Property Room” describes how the Houston Police Department (Texas) planned, designed, and built a state-of-the-art police property and evidence storage facility. “What Does It Take to Excel?" outlines nine characteristics of police officers who excel in their job. In "Leadership Legacies,” the author, upon nearing retirement, reflects on lessons learned about leadership.
