Chain of custody refers to the chronological documentation of the custody, control, transfer, analysis, and disposition of physical or electronic evidence.

Documentation of your actions refers to keeping a record of the actions taken by law enforcement officers or investigators during the investigation process.

      Government issued sidearm

    • B.

      Spare Batteries

    Correct Answer
    A. Government issued sidearm
    Explanation
    Bringing a government issued sidearm to a crime scene is not advisable because it can potentially contaminate the evidence or escalate the situation. Firearms should be handled by trained professionals such as law enforcement officers. Their presence at a crime scene can compromise the integrity of the investigation and may hinder the work of forensic experts in collecting accurate evidence. Therefore, it is best to leave firearms outside of a crime scene to ensure the safety of everyone involved and to maintain the integrity of the investigation.

While mechanical and hardware tools, seizure supplies, and specialized wireless equipment may be useful for collecting evidence or conducting investigations at a crime scene, an off-road vehicle is not directly related to these tasks. It is more commonly used for transportation in rugged terrains, which may not be necessary or relevant at a crime scene.
