Evidence / Crime Scene

Evidence

The Crime Scene Section responds to a full range of crimes where special knowledge and experience in locating and preserving important evidence is required. These deputies have attended advanced training courses in which they review the most current scientific and practical crime scene applications of evidence collection and crime scene techniques. Personnel assigned to the unit have a variety of skills and levels of expertise in such areas as fingerprint examination, computers, firearms, crime scene diagramming, photography, and trace evidence collection, among others.

The Crime Scene unit works closely with Patrol deputies and also detectives from the Criminal Investigations Division. The primary responsibility of the Crime Scene Section is to process each crime scene for evidence that might be present and complete a detailed report. Sometimes this evidence could be as small as a single hair or piece of carpet fiber. Their efforts assist law enforcement in obtaining probable cause for the arrest of suspects, and assist prosecutors in presenting evidence for trial that could aid in obtaining a conviction. The unit was created in 1996 under the guidance of Bill Hull, who has since retired. The minimum training for a crime scene technician is 40 hrs. Technicians work 24hr, 7-day shifts and responds to all major crimes.

All current members are employed by the Sheriff's Office as sworn deputies. A requirement of being a unit member is to be an active member of the Florida Division of the International Association for Identification and attend that association's yearly learning seminar.
