Huber Heights Police Division Evidence Technicians receive specialized training from the Miami Valley Regional Crime Laboratory. Each EV Technician has been through either a 120 hour or 80 hour initial training course. The purpose of an EV Tech is to collect evidence at crime scenes. This evidence is used to investigate crimes and prosecute criminals. Each EV Technician has had extensive training and hands on experience in subjects such as:
- Crime Scene Mapping and Diagramming
- Firearms and Toolmarks
- Latent fingerprint collection and preservation
- Trace Evidence
- Death Investigation
- Blood Spatter
If officers respond to your residence or business for anything from a theft from a motor vehicle to a death, you will most likely encounter an EV Tech who will collect and preserve evidence at the scene.
