This is a Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) elective Crime Scene Management online training course offered for Texas Peace Officers, Jailers, and Telecommunicators.

You are dispatched to a shots fired call at 2:00 a.m. You arrive at the scene and observe the lights are on at the residence, and the front door is open. You cautiously approach the open front door, and are able to observe a body lying on the floor in a pool of blood with what is obviously a fatal head wound. Your backup arrives, and together you search the residence and determine there is no one else present. Would you and your partner know how to safely clear the scene while being mindful of the need to preserve the evidence it contains? Would you know what you contaminated, disturbed or moved, and can you document it? Would you know how to establish a proper ingress/egress path for other responders to follow? This course will answer these and many more questions about managing a major crime scene resulting in the successful apprehension and prosecution of an offender.

Please note, the entire course (including any applicable course parts), final exam(s), and course evaluation(s) must be completed in order to receive one (1) hour of course credit.
