How Crime Scene InvestigationWorks is that when the CSI UnitsGet a call from the police to beDispatched to the scene. When they arrive, 4 processes areTaken into account, to gather theEvidence necessary.
The CSI arrives on the scene andmakes sure it is secure. They doan initial walk-through to get anoverall feel for the crime scene, findsout if anyone moved anything beforethey arrived, and generates initialtheories based on visual examination.they makes note of potential evidence.nothing is touched in this process.
The CSI documents the scene bytaking photographs and drawingsketches during a second walk-through. Sometimes, thedocumentation stage includes a videowalk-through, as well. The teamdocuments the scene as a whole anddocuments anything they hasidentified as evidence. The evidence isstill untouched.
The team can now touch stuff -- very,very carefully. The CSI systematicallymakes their way through thescene collecting all potential evidence,tagging it, logging it and packaging itso it remains intact on its way to thelab. Depending on the task breakdownof the CSI unit, they may or may notanalyze the evidence in the lab.
The crime lab then processes all of theevidence the CSI Unit has collected atthe crime scene. When the lab resultsare in, they go to the lead detective onthe case.
