Electronic Crime Scene Investigation: A Guide for First Responders .  July 2001

Computers and other electronic devices are being used increasingly to commit, enable, or support crimes against persons, organizations, or property. This NIJ  Guide (NCJ 187736) is intended for use by law enforcement and other responders who have the responsibility for protecting an electronic crime scene and for the recognition, collection, and preservation of electronic evidence. The document is not all-inclusive. Rather, it deals with the most common situations encountered with electronic evidence.

Understanding DNA Evidence: A Guide for Victim Service Providers , May 2001

DNA evidence is playing a larger role than ever before in criminal cases throughout the country, both to convict the guilty and to exonerate those wrongly accused or convicted. In light of this increasing role, NIJ and OVC developed this brochure to describe the value of DNA evidence for victim service providers so that they can understand the potential significance of DNA evidence to their clients’ cases. It also discusses evidence collection, contamination, and preservation issues; the interpretation of DNA test results; and the CODIS index.
