Crime Scene Kit


Kit contains an assortment of items for crime scene evidence preservation and collection, such as fingerprinting and crime scene sketching tools.

Trace Evidence Tape


Picks up minute hairs and fibers. To release the evidence, technicians soak the tape in water and then filter out the particles.

Gun Shot Residue Test Kit


Kit allows officers to test a suspect’s hands in the field for gun shot residue.

Narcotics Field Test Kit


Officers can test narcotics on the street using testing kits. The pouch above (appr. 2″w x 3″h) is used for testing cocaine. A small sample (a pinch) is placed inside the plastic pouch. The pouch is closed (zip lock) and then each of the three glass ampules are broken in sequence. If the sample turns solid blue it is indeed cocaine. The results are instantaneous. Kits available for all drugs. Indicator colors vary for different drugs. For example, marijuana turns the solution a yellowish-brown.

(Note – color changes and containers vary depending upon the manufacturer).
