Tutor description

In a weekly coordination meeting, several senior investigators from the state crime lab request that AB Investigative Services (ABIS) prepare a standard operations procedure document concerning the general processing of computer evidence. Recent forensic investigator actions during the processing of computer evidence have failed to show understanding of how computer data are created, modified, and stored. In addition, the investigators have not understood the underlying technical issues tied to evidence processing and associated security issues. Provide four general evidence processing guidelines to ensure investigators understand the steps of processing evidence and the results when standard operating procedures are not followed.

CRJS365-IP4NameClassDateProfessorStandard Operations Procedure Document In order to ensure that justice is served the forensic investigator must be careful to follow established evidence processing guidelines as well as the legal requirements associated with the search. To ensure investigators understand the proper procedures for processing evidence a standard operations manual will be made available. It is important that forensic investigator protects the integrity of the evidence through proper documentation, collection, and transportation of the evidence. When these vital steps are not followed the evidence could be subject to exclusion from the court process. When a forensic investigator arrives at a crime scene the area should already be secured by responding police officers. The forensic investigator will interview responding officers and make sure the scene is secure. The investigator will walk through the crime scene taking notes about potential evidence and develop a theory of the crime while carefully avoiding causing any damage to existing evidence (Gonzlez de Len, 2000). The investigator will make determinations on the best method for searching for evidence depending on the crime scene. Interior and exterior crime scene will be investigated with different approaches. The second step in the processing evidence at any crime scene is to carefully document the evidence through sketching the crime scene and taking photograph
