Once an actual crime or prohibited activity is detected, investigative skill is critical. Usually not everything about the incident or who is involved is immediately apparent. In most cases, further investigation is necessary. The questions of who, what, where, when, how, and sometimes why must be asked and answered. The ability to conduct a thorough and conclusive investigation is extremely important to the successful prosecution of the case and to reduce any liability or opportunity for later litigation.

These indicators include violation of internal controls, policies, or procedures.
