Crime Scene: Temperature and Weather Data Mobile App
The Crime Scene: Temperature and Weather Data Form app is a form that can be used for recording all pertinent weather related data from a crime scene.
How does it work?
Some of the most often overlooked components of a crime scene by law enforcement are the environmental ones - the weather and temperature in particular. Ensuring that environmental conditions are noted from a crime scene is important for a broad range of reasons including determining a time of death for a homicide from body temperature, to ensuring that physical evidence isn't impacted due to rain or humidity. Crime scene investigators can utilize this app to record whether the weather is sunny, overcast, drizzling, snowing, partly sunny, foggy, raining, sleeting, and more. Additionally, the air temperature, water temperature, and humidity are noted, and the time temperatures were recorded is noted. Notes and observations about the crime scene can be included in this app as they relate to the weather.
