Detective Jake's Place“Spook how does a person become an expert?” asked Ole Sam
“I guess that depends upon becoming an expert in what” replied Spook
“Well say detective work” asked Ole Sam.
Spook thought for a few moments. Then a grin. Ole Sam must be reading detective novels and has a bug to become an expert in investigations.
Dear reader reading and research are a keys to becoming a detective or investigations expert. What better place to start than with Sheila and her compelling web site Detective Jake's Place. Below in her own words.
It's been many years since I created my first website and I still have a lot to learn in order to create what most people would consider a top-notch website. While I do consider design to be important, I feel it's more important to be able to convey the information presented in a way which can be understood by anyone surfing the internet and to make it easy to find within the site. I currently maintain several websites with information ranging from law enforcement to my family's history.
Detective Jake's Place is an off-shoot of the site about my yet unpublished fictional detective series. For many years I've been interested in the crime solving process and forensic science. My writing has led me into deeper research of that process and the various laws and their enforcement. I developed my website around that research. Although I'm not employed in any field within law enforcement, the material presented is well-researched.
At first, I thought I'd only get negative reactions to my site from people within law enforcement because the information is presented by someone with no training in that career field. The opposite is true and many police officers have thanked me for presenting the information. As with some of the material at my other sites, there are a few people who disagree with what I present, but even the disagreements have been friendly and I've learned from people with opposing viewpoints. And, to me, that's my main reason for creating websites ... to share information and learn from people who either visit my site, invite me to theirs, or exchange emails.
