Sure investigators will all have pet theories and suspicions, but if they are true to their profession, then they will remain open and objective, certainly willing to consider new evidence. Investigators must report their findings objectively and truthfully to whomever needs to know, no matter how those facts impact on their personal beliefs. ” Granted, the police are the ones who initially deny individuals their freedom through arrest. But in no book on law enforcement will the investigator find “putting people in prison” to be a responsibility of the police.
Truth is defined by the collection of evidence, factual information that allows us to draw some conclusion about an event. The crime scene investigator realizes the significance of physical evidence in defining this truth. Unlike testimonial evidence, physical evidence does not lie. We as humans may well misinterpret what the physical evidence is telling us, but that is our own fault. Physical evidence will aid both the investigator and the jury in corroborating or refuting much of the testimonial evidence.
Crime scene work often presents significant personal ethical dilemmas. Any of several factors—a sense of duty, a belief in the guilt of a particular individual, or simply disgust with a system that often allows half-truths to be presented to the jury—can warp the investigator’s purpose. Investigators must never allow such issues and their associated dilemmas to lead them to stray from their professional duty, which is to remain an objective seeker of truth.
