Tutor description

The detective assigned this murder investigation has never handled a homicide. As she drives you to the scene, you begin to assess the things you already know, and you start to formulate a plan for the crime scene search. Using the two crime scene sketches provided here for interior and here for exterior, write a proposal for how the crime scene should be searched. Identify the areas that will be searched and what type evidence you might expect to find in those areas. Create a set of instructions for all of the department personnel who will be available and assign them roles.

CRJS365-DB2NameClass DateProfessorCRJS365-DB2 When searching a crime scene that involves both an interior and exterior crime scene an approach for locating evidence will need to be developed. The first step in any crime scene is to ensure it has been properly secured by responding police officers and then to do a walk through making detail notes of the crime scenes in order to determine what approach should be taken. The approaches taken for the interior and exterior crime scene will need to be different but the approach would involve similar steps. Documentation involves preserving and records all aspects of the crime scene (Dutelle, 2010). Because documenting the crime scene is one of the most important steps of the crime scene investigator it is important that it is documented in more than one way. The first step in documenting the interior and exterior crime scene after the walk through is to photograph, sketch, and if possible video the crime scene. The sketches should involve a map of the two crime scenes as well as to make note of the condition of the crime scene (Sarisky, 2010). It is important to carefully document the scene for later use in a court case and to ensure that evidence is located so a plan can be developed concerning the collection of the evidence. Documentation will also enable the crime scene investigator to develop a theory concerning the events that occurred during the crime and the location of possible evidence.
