I can speak for the County Police Department, I can't speak for another agency, okay. We do not package firearms in this manner.
If I go to a scene and there's a firearm laying there, okay. There's a standard protocol that we always follow, and I think you may have seen some of those from Detective
We'll take an overall view, we'll take what is called a midrange view to tie in that firearm, if we are talking about bag this, where it is on this section of the table. The overall view would be the entire room, okay. Midrange view would say, well, it is near these two jurors and these two microphones.
Then we would take a close-up view of it, but it is still in place. We have not manipulated it, we have not touched it and then what you folks will see here shortly we follow the same protocols as far as images.
Once it is photographed in place, then wearing gloves, we will pick it up, usually lay it on another surface, whether it is an evidence envelope or evidence box, which would be the County Police Department. We don't put fires arms in a package.
And then we would lay that firearm, we would photograph both sides, we would take an image of the serial number, we would remove the magazine, photograph all of these things as they are, and then we would unload the magazines and whatever rounds in the magazine. We would display them next to the magazine to document, well, these are the rounds that we found in there.
We would then lock the slide back and whatever is in the chamber or not in the chamber then we would document that.
We would package those items separately, but they all go into one gun box.
If we were to seize this and render it safe, then it would be inspected by another detective or one of my supervisors to confirm Detective looked at this gun and he cleared it, and I'm checking to make sure that it is cleared so everyone is safe.
We would then put what's called a lead seal, which has a number on it through the trigger guard, which would be this section right here. And per our firearms unit, we would put in essence, it is a orange zip tie that runs from, if I can change images, Miss Alizadeh?
