DOJ Crime Scene Investigation (CSI): Documentation Mobile App
The DOJ Crime Scene Investigation (CSI): Documentation app is a valuable tool that can be used at crime scenes during investigations.
How does it work?
After crime scene investigators arrive on the scene, an assessment of the scene determines what kind of documentation is needed (e.g., photography, video, sketches, measurements, notes). This evaluation of the necessary documentation can prompt the correct forensic experts to be called in, including crime scene photography specialists, sketch artists, videographers, and scene investigators that specialize in measurements and documentation of 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.
