Officer in Charge: Sergeant Joseph Yamin
These specialized officers are all assigned to the Patrol Division and they perform these technical duties in addition to their day-to-day patrol responsibilities. Currently, there are 16 certified Evidence Technicians proportionately assigned to both platoons of the Patrol Division. The specialized training in photography, evidence collection, latent fingerprint collection and crime scene processing, make these technicians valuable and readily available resources to assist in the investigative process.
Evidence Technicians are uniformed police officers, which allows for their immediate use at crime scenes. The importance of immediate crime scene processing cannot be over emphasized in both the investigative and prosecution phases of law enforcement.
