Before crime scene cleanup teams are even allowed to begin their work, police investigation teams do a thorough investigation of the scene, bagging and tagging all evidence. Professional technicians make sure to preserve all evidence and any other relevant information while providing scene remediation services.
For example, after a successful convenience store robbery, the robber escaped to his vehicle and drove away as the injured clerk, losing blood, alerted the police. Emergency response teams arrived at the store in minutes and quickly ordered an ambulance to take the clerk for medical help. The store clerk who was injured was able give detailed descriptions to police detectives. Police were also able review surveillance videotape. Death Scene Cleanup
After a thorough examination of the crime scene by the CSI team, a professional clean up company, called in by the police, begin to clean the mess left by the robbery. As they were cleaning the area by the counter, one of the technicians noticed a small speck of blood that had been missed by the police as it was so small. Apparently, the robber had scratched himself on a metal appendage attached to the counter when he drew his gun.
The discovery was made known to police detectives. Police were notified by one of the cleanup technicians who showed it to them. This company is familiar with identifying and working with police.
The police ran the blood for DNA analysis and compared it to samples they had in storage at the county jail. The photo of a previous defendant that matched the one in the video footage from the convenience store was used to identify him. The courthouse located the address of the victim and arrested and convicted him.
While this is not a common occurrence, one of the primary qualifications necessary for trauma scene remediation work is an attention to detail. Crime scene cleanup is not like janitorial service. The job of professional biohazard cleaners is to eliminate potential hazards from blood and bodily fluids wherever they land. These cleanup teams must be thorough and attentive to all details. If this is something that makes you proud, the team can help the police with their investigation.
