Major Crime Scenes
The actions taken by patrol and investigative officers at crime scenes often determine the course and success of a criminal investigation. Initial responding officers play the lead role by protecting the crime scene, rendering emergency services and initiating the investigation.

These documents provide applicable procedures to effectively protect, collect and preserve evidence of a crime and conduct initial investigative and other essential tasks at major crime scenes.
