Role of forensic science in crime scene investigation
The scene of occurrence is the place where the criminal act has been reported to have taken place. After a crime is been reported to the police, the investigation process is set into motion. Quite often, the success or failure of the entire criminal investigation will depend upon proper handling of the crime scene and processing of the evidence. The investigator who is very important person in every crime scene plays an active role and therefore must possess the knowledge and skill to preserve the evidence available at the crime scene. He must learn to recognise, identify, preserve and collect items of physical evidence. He must also be fully conversant with the legal as well as the scientific requirements in the collection of the evidence.
