This section of the Crime Laboratory provides a wide range of photographic services that include printing, processing and storage of digital/film images and historical photographs. The daily responsibilities of the Photo Technician’s include photographing evidence, cataloging Crime Scene photos, uploading all of the Crime Scene digital images, recording those digital images onto CD’s, and making prints for court and investigative purposes. The technician’s also photograph St. Louis County Police public events.
All of the Photo Technicians are skilled in the handling of all types of media as well as traditional photo/negative processes. As technology has evolved in recent years, the section has accepted the challenge and remained current.
