Mock crime scene for training.

Frank Harris, the owner of SERVPRO of Statesboro, participated in IICRC Trauma and Crime Scene Clean Up Training (TCST). The TCST training course reviews the process for inspecting and investigating crime and trauma scenes, which may involve blood and other potentially infectious materials. The course focuses on the procedures to follow as well as the precautions that must be taken. PLEASE NOTE: This is not an actual trauma or crime scene. This is a mock version for training purposes only.

Common Crime Scene Contaminates

1/4/2018 (Permalink)

No matter how many CSI or forensic TV shows we’ve seen, leaving the crime scene clean-up to the professionals is the best route to take for both your health and safety. After the police have finished processing a crime or accident scene, the cleaning and restoration process can begin. Many times, crime and accident scenes have biohazard contaminants that pose a serious health risk.

One example of a crime scene contaminant is forensic residue. Forensic investigators use a variety of different materials and substances to conduct their investigations, such as fingerprint dust. SERVPRO of Statesboro is responsible for ensuring that these substances do not remain at the site. We also handle bodily fluids. The fluids pose a health risk if they are not handled properly, and witnesses should not attempt to remove them from the crime site. SERVPRO of Statesboro will respond immediately and has the specialized training, protective equipment and experience to safely clean trauma and crime scenes.
