Qualitative and quantitative study of police investigative thinking styles
Dean, Geoff, Fahsing, Ivar A., & Gottschalk, Petter (2007) Qualitative and quantitative study of police investigative thinking styles. International Journal of Knowledge and Learning, 3(1), pp. 76-87.
A qualitative study of detectives’ investigative thinking in Australia identified four thinking styles: method style, challenge style, skill style and risk style. Multiple item scales were developed for these four constructs in a survey instrument. A quantitative study based on the questionnaire was conducted among detectives in Norway. None of the multiple item scales achieved acceptable reliability. Factor analysis suggests a number of new thinking styles, including entrepreneur style and architect style.
