Crime Scene Search Team
The Crime Scene Search Team is called in do photography, searches, warrants, and evidence collection of major crime scenes throughout the state of Vermont.
Unlike television’s “CSI” type programs, our team does not investigate and solve cases in an hour. BCI detectives still do the investigations, background, and interviews, while the CSST carefully analyzes, documents, and processes major crime scenes for physical evidence.
The team uses the Vermont Forensic Lab to do detailed analysis of the evidence that is collected. We may collect blood, hair, fibers, fingerprints, DNA, as well as take detailed measurements and photographs, and look for trajectory paths. We process evidence in buildings, vehicles, parking lots, and deep in the woods.
