Basic Evidence Technician Course
Law enforcement professionals gain the knowledge and skills to locate, document, collect
and preserve items of evidentiary value at a crime scene. The curriculum is built
from the principles and standards set forth by the International Association for Identification
(IAI) and relevant Scientific Working Groups (SWGs) such as the Scientific Working
Group for Shoeprint and Tire Tread Evidence (SWGTREAD). Subjects covered in the course
include crime scene management and safety, biological evidence recovery, trace evidence,
packaging and chain of custody.
This course provides the foundation for SLEA's Advanced Crime Scene Technician/Investigator courses: Bloodstain Evidence, Bullet Trajectory Reconstruction and Death Investigation programs.
