Crime scene flags provide visual information in overall and mid-range crime scene photographs to document the evidence’s relationship to the crime scene. They also alert the crime scene technician to the area where the evidence is located when it may not be readily observed.
In outdoor crime scenes, it may be difficult to see evidence because of high grass or uneven ground conditions. This situation is more prevalent in cases in which human bones or remains of a victim in a rural setting need to be documented and recovered.
Crime scene flags are particularly useful in large outdoor scenes encountered in automobile and aircraft accidents where the evidence that needs to be located, marked and collected can be spread over a very large area.
These are bright yellow flags of 4″x5″ plastic on a 21″ wire staff. The flags have “EVIDENCE Do Not Touch” printed in large letters.
The flags can be used alone if they can be easily inserted in the ground or with the Versa Cones when practical and when a hard surface is present.
Flags are available in packs of 10 or 100.
