Campus Security: Tools and Processes for Campus Security Staff to Preserve Incident Scenes

The proper preservation and protection of a campus crime scene by district personnel will allow the police to gather uncontaminated evidence—thereby increasing the possibility of suspect apprehension. This understanding will help school personnel appreciate the care that is needed in protecting a scene. Evidence thus properly gathered provides necessary documentation for the district risk managers should a crime occur on campus.

  1. Preserving the Crime Scene
