An important step in any investigation is establishing and working through a timeline – efficiently, fairly and diligently.
Colin McLaren outlines for Eve Ash the crucial nature of establishing and filling out a timeline. It will be necessary to go back to before the accident or crime occurred and gather information thereon. This must be done efficiently, impartially and frankly. Take control of the process of inquiry methodically. Failure to search is failure to find: open your eyes and conduct all aspects of the search as necessary.
