DOJ Crime Scene Investigation (CSI): Conduct Scene Assessment Form Mobile App
The DOJ Crime Scene Investigation (CSI): Conduct Scene Assessment Form is a useful and valuable tool for crime scene technicians and law enforcement officers.
How does it work?
Assessment of the scene by the investigator in charge allows for the determination of the type of incident to be investigated and the level of investigation to be conducted. Proper assessment of the physical evidence can warrant whether forensic science technicians or forensic scientists need to be called, whether a criminal investigation is warranted, what physical evidence needs to be collected, whether fingerprints need to taken, and if specialty investigators are brought in. Ultimately, this app can help to drive selection of resources for a proper investigation to be conducted.
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.
