!!! Recent Updates !!!
Effective February 18th, 2014, a minor revision to the Digital & Multimedia Evidence Submission Form was completed (current revision: 1.1).
Effective April 1st, 2013, the Crime Lab will begin accepting evidence for Toxicology and Computer Forensics examinations.
The following submission forms have been updated to reflect these new examinations.
Submission Form (v3.0)
This form was updated to include our new examination request categories (BAC, TOX and DME). In conjunction with this change, several of the previous examination request codes were revised ("ARS" is now "FD" and "CSI" is now "BPA") - see the exam request code legend at the bottom right of the form for a complete description. The format was updated slightly to more clearly emphasize the importance of providing a case synopsis. Disclaimer statements underneath the evidence table were also revised.
Digital & Multimedia Evidence Submission Form (v1.1)
This is a new form which will be required
at the time of submissions whenever evidence is submitted with a "DME" examination request. It is important to note that a copy of the legal authority (consent, search warrant, etc.) must be attached to this form. The bottom half of the form should be completed as it applies to the case and examination(s) being requested.
Effective February 1st, 2013, the Crime Lab will require a victim name/identifier to be included on all submission sheets before evidence will be accepted for examination. A victim identifier should be a proper name, whenever possible. In some cases, the victim might be a more generic identifier such as the State of Kansas, a city, or an “unidentified white female”.
More in depth information on Evidence Submission and Packaging can be found on their respective pages.
Suggestions for information regarding evidence submission, examination capabilities or anything else which you feel would be helpful should be directed to the laboratory.
