Crime scene reconstruction in real life is far different from what a viewer observes on television in a variety of police shows.  In order to obtain reliable information from a crime scene examination a properly trained crime scene technician moves through a 12-stage process.  Each step in the process requires the technician to perform specific tasks.  The steps are adjusted to the complexity of the crime scene.  The 12 steps are as follows: 

  • Approach to the scene

  • Secure and protect the scene

  • Preliminary survey

  • Photography

  • Diagramming

  • Conduct detailed search

  • Documentation and collection of physical evidence

  • Scene processing – analysis

  • Final survey

  • Release of scene

  • In house laboratory analysis

  • Transmittal of evidence to outside laboratory
