CJK0078 Crime Scene to Courtroom

Upon arriving at an incident or crime scene, an officer will take a sequences of steps to protect all parties, gather information, identify, separate and interview subjects and complete the initial investigation successfully. The single most significant part of the initial stage of a criminal investigation is the processing of the crime scene, identifying types of evidence that might be present at a scene based on an evaluation of the incident or crime and knowing when and how to get help in searching the scene. The first priority is to secure, protect and preserve the scene to avoid contaminating the evidence. The second priority must be to search for, identify, document, collect and maintain the physical evidence or the prosecution of the suspect may be in jeopardy.
