Duties of citizens
- It is the duty of a citizen to inform any incidence of Crime to the nearest Police Station at the earliest. Police will then requisition the Forensic service.
- Whenever and wherever crime is committed, the first party to reach the scene of crime is usually citizens. It is of utmost importance not to disturb the scene as evidences could be lost, destroyed or contaminated. Instead, citizens can help the crime scene investigation by preserving the scene of crime before the arrival of the Police Officers or the Forensic Experts.
- It is important to remember that the scene of crime should be left untouched.
- A citizen must know that all the evidences were examined with scientific methods and techniques. Forensic examination favors no one but the facts and only the facts alone.
