When people hear the term “cold case,” most think about an old, unsolved murder. While this definition is not incorrect, the idea that the term “cold case” only pertains to a murder is inaccurate. Seasoned investigator Jason Moran will discuss how to define and categorize cold cases, as well as provide key considerations and strategies for investigators handling cold cases to increase solvability.
This webinar is intended for police departments seeking to increase their understanding of cold case investigations and improve cold case investigative outcomes.
