Central Evidence Receiving


about us​​

The Central Evidence Receiving (CER) Section provides a central location for the acceptance of physical evidence into the laboratory. As evidence is received, a unique case number is assigned, and case submission information is entered into a Laboratory Information Management System. Evidence is stored in a secure location and distributed to forensic scientists for analysis or comparison. After completion, the items are returned to the investigating officer via CER.

Educational Requirements

Graduation from an accredited four-year college or university with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice or other suitable degree or four years of full-time paid experience as a certified law enforcement officer, or equivalent experience in a related field.​
