Survey on Adequate Staffing Levels in the CSI Discipline

This survey was created in response to a gap in knowledge about adequate CSI staffing levels highlighted by the Crime Scene Investigation Subcommittee within the Organization of Scientific Area Committees (OSAC). The survey is designed to establish a better picture of what adequate staffing at a crime scene is for CSIs and examines investigation quality and effectiveness through things like investigation type, size of crime scene(s), and the number of crime scenes requiring investigation. This is an important step in identifying issues across the discipline so that the OSAC CSI Subcommittee can make discipline-wide recommendations on proper staffing at crime scenes. Your participation is greatly appreciated. Please contact Joe Trevino at if you have any questions or concerns.
