In the first event of its kind, detectives and investigators from the Crime Police Department gathered recently to share their memories and experiences in the form of anecdotes and stories.

Prior to the festival dubbed ‘Every Detective: One Memory, One Experience,’ the Crime Police Department announced in a press release that the department intends to build on the massive knowledge and experience of retired detectives untapped so far. Retirement of an investigator meant that all his or her hard-won experience over the years would fade into oblivion if not compiled. But with the launch of the event, it is about to change.  

‘’By launching this event we are trying to achieve multiple objectives-since by dissecting an anecdote we can see how competent our detectives are, what the status of investigative management is and how the various training that detectives have gone thorough has shaped their career,’’ said Col. Gholamhossein Biabani, head of the Applied Research Office of the Crime Police.  ‘’Although the crime branch is one of the oldest and robust police departments in the country, unfortunately we have not been up to the mark in producing literature and this event is a step in making up for the past shortcomings.’’

Biabani noted that alongside tackling crime-which is their primary mission, the department should also educate organizations, industries and ordinary citizens on how to take safety measures against crime or else the police will be overburdened by the single, cumbersome task of tracking down criminals. ‘’Since the Crime Police is itself a treasure trove of information, it can help synchronize safety standard policies of other organizations.”


Biabani, who was also the festival manager, said training of investigators takes prominence since crime officers are the true assets of the department. He said detectives should upgrade their knowledge continually.  

One way to enhance the methods used by crime police is to familiarize them with new techniques used by criminals. The aim of the event was to pool the experiences of yesterday’s detectives and refine and use them to educate tomorrow’s crime police, he said. ‘’The more investigators ponder over the experiences of their seniors, the more skillfully they will be able to envisage future cases and help reduce errors.’’

Based on the principle of knowledge transfer, Biabani announced that the Crime Police wants to revive the hierarchical method of training known as ‘’master-apprentice,’’ which on the one hand will enhance the quality of investigative work and on the other the transfer of knowledge and experience “in a sensible way.”

Several anecdotes were sent to the festival from the provinces with each of them in Biabani’s words ‘’being worthy for a movie script or a book’’.

The event was divided into two sections. The first devoted to anecdotes by retired detectives in the four categories of ‘homicide’, ‘abduction’, ‘theft’ and ‘financial scams and swindling’. In this section, the writers chronicled their unique experiences in ultimately solving those crimes.

The second involved snippets and short tips that reflect the experiences of long-time detectives. Biabani noted that the department also intends to educate its staff on how to write a well-crafted anecdote “so they will have the upper hand in this area too.”
