The Department's Forensics Unit is comprised of civilian Evidence Technicians whose primary responsibility is to respond to incidents that require processing for evidence. At a crime scene, the Evidence Technicians are responsible for completely processing and documenting the scene. This includes photographing, processing for fingerprints, collecting evidence, completing diagrams (if needed), and completing a detailed report of their actions at the scene to include all procedures used and the evidence recovered. All evidence collected must be packaged and processed before turning it over to the Property and Evidence Unit. The Evidence Technicians testify in court to their actions at crime scenes.
