For Non-Forensic Personnel

image of Crime Scene and Physical Evidence Awareness
This manual aims at raising awareness of the importance of good practices in crime scene investigations and the nature and relevance of physical evidence. It covers issues related to the work at the scene, from the actions of the first responder(s) to the submission of evidence to the laboratory. As such, it provides the very basis for enabling more evidence-based reconstruction of events.
