Documentation can be performed in many ways; written notes, photographically, sketches, diagrams, computer generated diagrams/animation, video and written reports. Proper scene analysis depends upon the careful reviewing of the documentation, collection, preservation and examination of the evidence.


In order to have a reasonable degree of scientific certainty, one must be able to repeat the tests and have the results reviewed to insure accuracy and completeness. Accurate notes detailing the procedures used should also be retained, to allow for review by other interested parties.


Critical mistakes can occur in the interpretation of the facts, when the documentation or the analysis of the evidence is improperly or incompletely performed. Allow FEAR to review test results, analysis, written reports or the actual items of evidence.


On occasion, members of the private sector might not want to get the authorities involved in internal (civil) matters, FEAR can document items and process items of an evidentiary nature. Fingerprints, serological items, questioned documents, handwriting analysis, fonts, printers, inks, etc.
