    When dealing with a living victim it is important to summon Medical attention as necessary.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When dealing with a living victim, it is crucial to summon medical attention as necessary because medical professionals are trained to assess and provide appropriate care for injuries or medical conditions. They have the knowledge and resources to stabilize the victim's condition, prevent further harm, and potentially save their life. Delaying or neglecting to seek medical help can worsen the victim's condition and increase the risk of complications or even death. Therefore, it is important to prioritize the victim's well-being and promptly call for medical assistance when dealing with a living victim.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The correct answer is False because if the suspect is on the scene, it does not necessarily mean that they should be immediately arrested and prevented from leaving. The decision to arrest the suspect should be based on the evidence and circumstances of the situation. It is important to conduct a proper investigation and gather sufficient evidence before making an arrest. Additionally, there may be situations where it is not safe or practical to immediately arrest the suspect, such as when there is a risk of harm to the officers or others present.

      Suicides

    Correct Answer
    D. Suicides
    Explanation
    All suicides or suspected suicides should be treated as a Homicide until proven otherwise because initially it is important to thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding the death. Treating suicides as homicides ensures that no potential foul play is overlooked and that all possible evidence is collected and analyzed. This approach helps to ensure a comprehensive investigation and accurate determination of the cause of death, which is crucial for providing closure to the family and for legal and statistical purposes.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that if a suicide note is present, it is important to compare the handwriting of the victim with the handwriting in the note. This can help determine if the note was indeed written by the deceased. Additionally, checking the note for fingerprints can provide further evidence to support its authenticity. Therefore, it is true that these steps should be taken to ensure that the note was written by the deceased.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false. A suicide note does not automatically exclude homicide as a possibility. While the presence of a suicide note may suggest that the death was self-inflicted, it does not definitively rule out the possibility of homicide. Other evidence and investigation are necessary to determine the cause of death accurately.
