  • Forensic photography: photographic documentation with digital and 35mm of the crime scene and all physical evidence. Can include latent evidence developed through physical or chemical processing or seen with alternate light sources.
  • Latent print development and recovery: experienced in developing latent prints with a variety of techniques to attain the best results. Latent prints are used to reconstruct the scene.
  • Shoe print and tire thread impressions evidence: impression evidence is documented correctly and collected with chemical processing or casting for analysis. Shoe print and tire thread evidence is compared to identify or eliminate shoe or tire sources.
  • General evidence collection and processing: Maintaining strict custodial records and evidentiary value while collecting, documenting, and processing all physical and latent evidence. Evidence requiring specialized analysis, including DNA extraction, gunshot residue, tool mark, firearm examinations, and hair, trace, and fiber analysis, is properly maintained and transported to the laboratory for testing.
