Crime Scene

The Crime Scene Unit is a support unit within the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office that responds to major crime scenes to preserve, document and collect evidence that will be presented in court. Investigators also provide in-house latent print and DNA collection of evidence submitted by deputies. Crime Scene Investigators are often called upon to testify to their findings in court proceedings.

The Unit supports local law enforcement and five jurisdictions throughout the Palm Beach County area. In some instances, the Unit supports other law enforcement agencies in close surrounding counties as well as the F.B.I., Florida Highway Patrol, D.E.A., U.S. Customs, A.T.F, US Secret Service, and The State Fire Marshals Office.
