our object, and try to find out all you can of thecircumstances surrounding the theft, so that the membersof the Department who take up the case from your reportwill be able to proceed intelligently. If you do not make amemorandum of all the material facts, it will be necessaryto send another officer to find them out before the Depart-ment can proceed efficiently. A great deal of judgment must be used at the scene ofthe crime. It may be found that if you arrest the thiefon suspicion immediately, and before sufficient evidencehas been obtained to justify it, he will escape conviction;for, when a crook knows he is suspected, he will not doanything to corroborate those suspicions. In such a cir-cumstance, you must immediately telephone the facts tothe station-house so that a detective can be assigned to thecase. Being in plain clothes, and his identity not known,he can secure evidence which you, with your office known,might not be able to obtain. 139 POLICE RESEEVE AND HOME DEFENSE GUARD
