Crime Scene Investigations

The St. Joseph Police Department's crime scene investigators are responsible for the collection of physical evidence through photography, physical crime scene search, recovery of latent fingerprints and any other form of physical evidence.


The types of evidence could include impressions, forensic biology, trace evidence, firearms evidence, and questionable documents.

The Crime Scene Investigators are a highly motivated group of individuals who use their knowledge, skills and abilities to recover visible and invisible evidence using the latest technology available.

The C.S.I.s continuously strive to familiarize themselves with innovative scientific and technological developments in all aspects of forensic science and crime scene investigation.

The Crime Scene Unit is a member of the Initial Response Team of the Northwest Missouri Major Case Squad. At the request of the Missouri State Highway Patrol-Troop H, the unit responds to other law enforcement agencies to assist and process scenes of major death investigation cases.
