Crime Scene Unit

The Crime Scene Unit falls under the responsibility of the Detective Bureau supervisors. The unit has two crime scene technicians holding the rank of Patrol Officer. They are responsible for processing crime scenes by observing, collecting, and preserving various forms of evidence. This includes fingerprints and impressions made by human beings, animals, tools and weapons that may serve to identify a suspect, the tools, or means of perpetrating a crime. The Crime Scene Unit works closely with the Stark County Crime Lab, The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, and other local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
