Crimes in Ecuador are continually increasing as a problem. Many crimes that are done are against US citizens; some of the crimes include sexual assault, pickpocketing, robbery and homicides. Plenty of criminals tend to commit crimes against those who don’t know an area very well, are alone or disorientated from alcohol or drugs.
It very important to collect and analyze evidence according to CSI protocol and regulations so all evidence can be contained efficiently without contamination.
When first responders arrive at a crime scene they must:
- secure/search the scene
- document/photograph evidence
- collect evidence
The officer to first arrive should always secure a scene through barriers so no person, vehicle or the environment can contaminate the scene or disturb any physical evidence. They must only allow authorized personnel to enter the scene.
Whatever is done has to be documented in chronological order and everything that is found in a crime scene photographed with measurements, this also includes the entire crime scene with every angle possible.
It is important exactly how the team collects and package the evidence on the scene; it is important they don’t contaminate it or lose it. Officers always have to be careful in a crime scene because they can contaminate it or physically be harmed or others around the scene can be harmed as well.
All documentation will be held as a permanent records that will be later used to determine if the officers missed anything when they first arrived at the scene.Officers should create systems where they can determine and package the evidence based on size, fragility or where it was found on the scene.
Preserving and collecting evidence will depend on whether the evidence is 2D or 3D. 2D evidence is usually found indoors on items such as countertops, glass and paper which is measured by length times width.
3D evidence is commonly found outdoors in items like sand, clay or mud. It can be measured by length times width times depth.To collect 2D evidence you would more commonly use powder, dust and sometimes lasers. To collect 3D evidence it would require casting. One of the most common types of 2D evidence are fingerprints. Very common types of 3D evidence are foot impressions.
Powder and dust would be used to find fingerprint but sometimes it would prove to be ineffective at times. In the 1970s lasers were first used to detect fingerprints by exposing the compounds of sodium and glucose. Once found it would be acquired by a latent lifting medium then placed into a plastic bag. Casting uses materials that duplicate and retain the characteristics of the impression left. This type of evidence would be placed in a sturdy box to prevent the cast from breaking.
By analyzing class characteristic evidence or individual characteristics evidence we can easily identify something or someone that will help build a case. Once the evidence is sent back to the lab certain characteristics would make the evidence class or individual. Class evidence are given qualities that many people or things can share.
Individual characteristics are far more helpful in solving cases because of the unique qualities it has such as fingerprints or wear marks in shoes.
For example the only people who have the same DNA are identical twins but you can distinguish them through their fingerprints because no one has the same fingerprints.
Officers must collect and analyze evidence according to CSI protocol and regulations. If it is not contained in the manner it’s supposed to, the strength of a case against someone will deteriorate.
To process and collect evidence the first responder must secure the scene, document it and take photographs. Depending on what type of evidence there is will determine how to effectively preserve evidence that will be analyzed by forensic scientists.
By officers following CSI protocols they will be able to catch more criminals. By following all guidelines the evidence will be credible in court leading to more criminals being prosecuted.
