During the 1960s, one of the most popular American television programs was called Dragnet, a police melodrama that clearly portrayed the forensic methods used in the pursuit of criminals, truth, and justice. To Sergeant Joe Friday, the indefatigable police detective, evidence was the life of truth, and the self-report method was the way to “facilitate the searches of it.” Friday knew how to get information from suspects and witnesses by persistent probing, a professional attitude, and a polite way of returning the respondent to “just the facts.”
