Effective Crime Scene Reporting:
Documentation and Demonstratives

Crime scene documentation demands an elevated and often technical level of detail that goes beyond standard field reporting needs of statutory and Uniform Crime Reporting requirements. Forensic/Scientific focused documentation can counter memory recall challenges experienced by even the most seasoned crime scene investigators. Accurate reporting offsets media-fueled CSI effects which adversely impacts ensuing and often time-delayed trials.

Forensic Technician Certification


Evidence Processing: Crime Scene to Courtroom Basics

Crime Scene Photography: The Essentials

Effective Crime Scene Reporting: Documentation and Demonstratives


Completion of the above three seminars and examination will result in the issuance of a Forensic Crime Scene Technician certification. These seminars do not need to be completed in the same week and anyone who has completed these seminars previously will be issued the certification. Likewise, these seminars may be taken individually and do not require they all be taken within the week and any of the seminars taken previously count towards the certification.
