Capture the Crime Scene

Every crime scene is somewhat like a DNA sample—unique and different from any other. The challenges of documenting these crime scenes remain similar for most cases and most law enforcement agencies:

  • Time limitations (especially for crash scenes)
  • Possible disruption of the scene and its evidence
  • Overlooked evidence in some instances 
  • The physical scope of the scene to be mapped, which many times can be large and complex 

This last point is particularly challenging, therefore, choosing the most effective scene documentation tool is essential. Tape measurements, total stations, and photogrammetry were once popular and reliable ways to document crime scenes. Their effectiveness, however, relied heavily on the investigator’s intuition as to what evidence was important to capture.

With time, solutions have been developed to alleviate these problems. 3D scanning is one such solution that has been steadily adopted by many law enforcement agencies.

The investigator using a laser scanner does not need to determine what evidence to capture

Son follows late father’s footsteps into crime scene investigation

For 21-year-old Jake Cushman, the drive to be a crime scene investigator starts with his dad.

The recent Portland Community College graduate said that growing up in Vancouver, he was proud of his father, Adam Cushman, who worked as a criminalist for the Portland Police Bureau. The two were close, enjoying the same “nerdy” interest such as “Star Wars” and superheroes. Together, they loved watching the show “Smallville,” a show that depicts a young Clark Kent as he comes to terms with his superpowers.

But one Sunday night in February 2010, Adam Cushman was killed in a crash on his way home from work.

A dump truck driver was driving in the 7300 block of Northeast 182nd Avenue when his engine stalled. His truck was partially in the
