DOJ Crime Scene Investigation (CSI): Emergency Care Mobile App
The DOJ Crime Scene Investigation (CSI): Emergency Care Form app is designed for emergency service responders working on crime scenes.
How does it work?
When reviewing a hazardous situation, emergency management may determine that a crime has been committed. After law enforcement has stabilized any dangerous situations or persons, the EMT responders provide medical attention to a trauma victim or other injured person, while minimizing contamination of the scene. In some instances, personal protective equipment will be needed, such as latex gloves or a bullet-proof vest. Emergency medical care personnel can greatly benefit from using the app to have established guidelines for effectively providing emergency medicine procedures at a crime scene.
This app will also benefit law enforcement responders who have the responsibility for protecting crime scenes, preserving physical evidence, and collecting and submitting the evidence for scientific examination. Physical evidence has the potential to play a critical role in the overall investigation and resolution of a suspected criminal act. Realization of this potential depends on actions taken early in the criminal investigation at the crime scene.
