Capture Every Clue

By: Hilary Rodela, Lead Digital Content Writer for Taction USA


Finding, documenting, and collecting every piece of evidence you can is crucial at a crime scene. One of the best and most helpful types of documentation at crime scenes are photos.


Crime scene photos allow you to review the scene as often as you would like. Photos may be shown to the jury to help them understand the scene better. Finally, if a case goes cold, a good set of crime scene photos will allow the new investigator decades later, step into the scene as if the photos were taken yesterday.


If you haven’t already taken a crime scene photography class, I highly suggest it. I have been through two and learned so much I ended up taking photos of mock scenes and practicing outside of work. There are so many techniques involved with crime scene photos and utilizing these will help you capture the scene as best as you can.
