Security officers must understand their role and responsibilities as they relate to crime scene investigation. They must recognize the protocols of preserving the incident scene as well as following the order of crime scene investigation. They must know how investigators properly document crime scenes and handle sensitive evidence material. Knowing the proper procedures for preserving the incident scene will help prevent errors and most importantly keep criminals off the streets. This course is designed to guide security officers in recognizing their responsibilities when dealing with crime scenes, following specific guidelines, and reporting crime scene procedures.
