The JCCL uses four primary forms for the submission of evidence for examination.
Evidence Submission Form (v3.1)
The primary form required for submission is the Evidence Submission Form. This form must accompany any evidence submitted to us for analysis, and needs to be filled out as completely as possible.
- Field 6 (Victim/Suspect Information) must include a victim name/identifier 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”.
- Field 7 (Relevant Case Synopsis/Additional Information) is required whenever you are requesting Biology, Digital/Multimedia or Trace analyses.
- Field 12 (Chain of Custody) will not be filled out until the evidence is actually accepted at the Johnson County Sheriff's Office Criminalistics Laboratory property room.
Resubmission Form (v2.1)
This form is only used when you are resubmitting evidence back to the Johnson County Sheriff's Office Criminalistics Laboratory. The reason for the return may lie at your agency, or with the DA, or it might have been based on a request from the laboratory. By filling out this form, our Property Room staff will know how to properly route the evidence upon return so that the analysis is completed in a timely manner.
DNA Submission Form (Excel-Based Form, v1.1) (Paper Form, v4.1)
This form is only required when the evidence being submitted includes touch-type DNA.
The form was significantly updated in late 2015 in an effort to make the form easier and faster to fill out. An Excel-based version of the form was also created to provide an easy, interactive way in which to complete the form. See the DNA Submission Program
page for more information.
- Digital & Multimedia Submission Form (v1.2)
This new form replaces the older Video Submission Form. It is used whenever requesting any "DME" examination including computer forensics and video analysis. It is required to be completed and included at the time of evidence submission. It is important to note that a copy of the legal authority (consent, search warrant, etc.) must be included with this form.
