Crime scene investigators, unlike forensic scientists – who conduct tests on physical evidence within a forensic laboratory – are the on-the-scene professionals who are called to the scene of a crime to ensure that all physical evidence is properly collected, preserved and documented according to a strict code of standards. These investigative professionals also ensure that all physical evidence is packaged and transported to a forensic laboratory.
