Electronic Crime Scenes
The National Institute of Justice has produced Electronic Crime Scene Investigation: An At-the-Scene Reference for First Responders. The publication is a quick reference for first responders who may be responsible for identifying, preserving, collecting, and securing evidence at an electronic crime scene. It describes different types of electronic devices and the potential evidence they may hold and provides an overview of how to secure, evaluate, and document the scene. It includes an overview of how to collect, package, and transport digital evidence and lists potential sources of digital evidence for 14 crime categories. The complete document (NCJ 227050) is available at the National Criminal Justice Reference Service’s website, http://www.ncjrs.gov.
