Evidence Collection Books: Gather Forensic Materials from a Crime Scene

What is Evidence Collection?

Evidence Collection is defined as – To retrieve the evidence “as-is” and without damaging the evidence.  It is generally referred to as the process for collecting physical evidence, data and photographs from a crime scene or other location during a crime scene investigation.

Although evidence is primarily collected by police officers and crime scene forensic specialists and related technicians, private detectives may visit the crime scene after the fact in an attempt to gather evidence for their clients. During that time, it is critical that private detectives have an understanding of proper evidence collection procedures. There are a number of great books on the subject that can be used to augment your on-the-job training, or formal education.
