When evidence is submitted to the lab, it is submitted to the front counter where evidence technicians take it in, make sure that it is properly packaged and sealed. We do not except improperly packaged evidence.
So you would get evidence, either in a box or a package, it would also have a receipt with it. And the evidence receipt just details all of the pertinent information as when the incident happened, the location, what kind of offense it is, urn, who the victim is, who the suspect is, and then what actually is inside of the packages or boxes.
So this evidence is then entered into our lab system, the actual evidence would be stored in our vaults, a secure location, until it is actually worked and the receipts would, they're stored back in biology and then we work them. It depends, but usually first end, first out. We do the crimes against persons cases first, they are more of a priority.
