Documenting a crime scene is imperative to a case. There are so many elements and points to consider, and all have to be documented well. This includes taking pictures, good ones, sketching out a scene, or scanning it with a 3D scanner, and taking notes.
One of the most important documents at a crime scene may seem minute or simply routine, but it is so much more than that. It is the crime scene log.
The crime scene log is the piece of paper that notates who came entered the crime scene, when they entered it, what their job title is, and why. It also documents when an individual leaves and what time as well. This log is often used in court as proof as well.
The crime scene log is usually manned by an officer on scene. The majority of that time, that officer will be outdoors. Since weather isn’t always predictable, nor does it always rule in our favor, Taction USA has developed a waterproof crime scene log. Rain or shine this log will stay in tact. No more worrying about ink smudging or running and if it does get wet, whether it be a little or a lot, it will dry flat so it will still look pristine.
Document your crime scenes with confidence! The better the tools the better the outcome of your case!
