Forensic Team

The Department has officers assigned to the York County Forensic Team. The popularity of the television show “C.S.I.” has increased the public’s interest in forensics and the police department’s capability to solve crimes through these methods. The officers assigned to this unit are specially trained in the collection of evidence at crime scenes. They utilize this training during investigations where evidence is needed to establish a suspect. Once the evidence is collected, it is usually analyzed by the team members and sent to a respective laboratory for specialized examinations. The Pennsylvania State Police Crime Lab or the FBI’s Laboratory in Quantico Virginia is normally asked to perform these crucial tasks. This team has been utilized several times in the last few years by Newberry Township. Officers from around the county participate and respond to assist us when we need them most. The team utilizes a former ambulance as their crime scene vehicle.
