Excellent app for first responding officers. Could really help in delivering better evidence to the lab. I've been involved in forensics a long time and this app reminded me of small things I have overlooked.

This app is an excellent tool for all law enforcement personnel who regularly seize cell phones for evidence. The guide is comprehensive in "best practices" for most situations. It is very helpful in managing several phones simultaneously. It is intuitive to use-helping complicated incidents become simpler. Sgt. Loretta Robinson


This app is great!!!! The first responder and crime scene investigator will find it extremely useful for documenting phones they collect in the field. The reporting and communication features are excellent. The BK Forensics seizure guide is a great resource. The app organizes the guide so that you can find information on suggested seizure techniques very quickly.
