Is there a form?
« on: Aug 03, 2006, 08:14:00 PM »
I wonder if there is a form or something that is the approved investigative log?  I may have to go in search of that but meantime there is no reason why you can't use a spiral notebook.  Some basic information you would need to record would be the location, date and time, weather conditions and team members.  You would need to record what each team member is responsible for during the course of the investigation and jot down any notes that might be pertinent.

I know there are some experts out there that know exactly how this should be done.

I have a 3 page form that i use on my "hunts".  It has places to list equipment used,type of equipment(i.e. digital,standard or infrared),investigators present,time,weather conditions,location,etc.  It has places to record phenomina witnessed,by who and what time.  The final page is a summary of the investigation.  If i scan you a copy,where could I send it?

Sounds like just what I was looking for.  You can email it to Dianna or I can PM you my email.  Either way will work. 

Thanks

I too have a form. It might need to be revised a little. You can check it out when you come down next week or I will email it to you.

Outstanding. We may be able to take from both and come up with our own. Those of you that have been on formal investigations probably know exactly what is needed.

No need to email it.  We will take a look at it next weekend.

I kind of like the first link you posted Wrennie.  It actually leads you to this:

http://www.ghosttech.net/

which is a site with some really good books and info.  Definitely worth putting in your favorites list.  Thanks for sharing.

After Wrennie posted the first link I "googled" and got lots of hits.  Some were PDF files while others were done in Word.  Some had logos and others were just plain and easily modified.  Most of the Word formatted ones encouraged you to download and modify where the PDF ones limited you to printing and filling in with pen and pencil.

Guess we need to print a few and see what we like and dislike and customize it to what we want.  Should be simple enough with Word and/or Excel.

It has been a while since I have been there. Looks like they have been doing some modifying to the site. Thanks for the link, Jayrod. :) The form that we have now is similar to what they have. :grinnnn:
