Unit 4

Write a 3-5 page paper, including a title page and reference page, responding to the following questions:

  • Discuss the responsibilities of the first responding officer at the crime scene.
  • Describe the basics of processing a crime scene including the proper documentation and collection of collecting physical evidence.

Use materials from the text and/or any outside resources to support your response.

You may use the textbook as a source, along with personal interviews, research and scholarly academic journals, available through the online library. Follow American Psychological Association (APA) format with proper citations and references.

Write your paper in a Word document and save it in a location and with a name that you will remember. Be sure to include your name, class, and section number in your paper. Submit your assignment by selecting the  Unit 4 Assignment 1 Dropbox by the end of Unit 4.

Set up a mock crime scene of your choice and find trace evidence in your crime scene.  Take pictures of the evidence and collect evidence by using the method of your choice. Note: no Vacuums will be needed and you will have to package the trace evidence.

Submit at least four or five photos in a PowerPoint presentation with an explanation of the crime scene. Post your presentation in the Unit 4 Assignment 2 Dropbox.

NOTE: if you do not have access to a digital camera, you may use a camera phone.
