The Evidence Control Unit (ECU) falls under the Forensic Support Section of the Forensic Services Group (FSG). The ECU renders support to all units and sections within the FSG by insuring the integrity of all items submitted to the FSG for scientific testing and analysis. This is achieved by properly preserving and packaging all submitted items in accordance with nationally recognized legal and scientific standards.
The Evidence Control Unit is also tasked with the proper storage of evidence as well as the transportation of items to the appropriate FSG facilities as needed. All items stored and preserved by the Evidence Control Unit are electronically tracked from time of submission until final disposition using the Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS).
