Each type of evidence may have different requirements or methodology for handling them at the scene for it to be properly identified, documented, processed, and admissible at trial.Prior to beginning work on this discussion, please review the following:

- Explain how the different types of collection and packaging of evidence might affect laboratory testing.
- Explain the requirements for the collection and packaging of evidence related to admissibility at trial.
Each thread must also address health and safety issues at the scene and in handling evidence (e.g., explosives, drugs, biological, etc.)The instructor has the discretion to reassign students to an alternative category to ensure all topics are covered.The body of your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from this weeks required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources and properly cite any references. Remember science is objective, not a matter of subjective opinions.?
