DOJ Crime Scene Investigation (CSI): Boundaries: Identify, Establish, Protect, and Secure Mobile App
The DOJ Crime Scene Investigation (CSI): Boundaries: Identify, Establish, Protect, and Secure app is a form that can be used for first responders and law enforcement personnel responding to crime scenes.
How does it work?
Defining and controlling boundaries provide a means for protecting and securing the crime scene and preserving evidence. The number of crime scenes and their boundaries are determined by their location and the type of crime. Boundaries can by established far beyond the original area of a crime scene, then reduced as warranted. A secured crime scene is important for a criminal investigation as physical evidence ends up secured, and the chain of custody for evidence can be protected as it is less likely for unauthorized individuals to handle or possess evidence.
The DOJ Crime Scene Investigation series of app is intended for use by law enforcement and other responders who have 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.
