Crime and investigation unit members are involved in collecting and studying the facts to identify a criminal offender or determine the guilt or innocence of an individual. Modern-day crime and investigation unit members are responsible for conducting interviews, evidence collection and preservation and, often times, forensic science. They are the on-the-scene professionals who are called to the scene of a crime to ensure that all physical evidence is properly collected, preserved and documented according to a strict code of standards. These investigative professionals also ensure that all physical evidence is packaged and transported to a forensic laboratory.
