These two videos will highlight the proper precautions to take when
conducting a crime scene investigation where the scene and the evidence are
contaminated by COVID-19. The first video provides an overview of safely
collecting and storing contaminated evidence, maintaining chain of custody,
using exposed evidence in a court room, decontaminating evidence, and lab
analyst protections. The second video lays out step-by-step procedures for
safely collecting and packaging latent fingerprint, hair and fiber, serological,
soil trace, impression, and document evidence.
