DOJ Crime Scene Investigation (CSI): Documentation of the Crime Scene Mobile App
The DOJ Crime Scene Investigation (CSI): Documentation of the Crime Scene app is a valuable tool for crime scene investigators and law enforcement agencies.
How does it work?
This app is useful during the preliminary parts of a criminal investigation. The app prompts a crime scene investigator to generate and produce reports and other documentation pertaining to the crime scene investigation. All of this information is then compiled into a case file by the investigator or investigators in charge of the crime scene. This file serves as a record of the actions taken and physical evidence collected at the scene. This documentation ensures that in the event an independent review of the crime scene investigation needs to be conducted, that it can be done with ease and reliability. The investigators in charge can utilize this app to ensure that reports and other documentation pertaining to the crime scene investigation are compiled.
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.
