Evidence Technician Unit

The Evidence Technician Unit is comprised of 7 police officers and they are responsible for maintaining crime scene integrity, properly collecting evidence, documenting incidents through proven methods, and establishing scientific facts surrounding crimes. Our Evidence Technicians have to attend an intense in-house training program involving latent finger print examination, photography, crime scene sketching, laser training, evidence recovery, and evidence document techniques and a lengthy on-the-job training with an experienced Evidence Technician before being released. This schooling is required on top of the initial crime scene investigation classes given during the basic police academy and initial hiring at the Pelham Police Department.
