As television shows like CSI and Law and Order continue to gain popularity, the general public may think they have a clear understanding of what happens at a murder scene. First, law enforcement officials and crime scene personnel work together to secure the area and collect evidence. Then the scene is fingerprinted and the neighborhood is canvassed looking for anyone with information. However, one big question these shows tend to leave unanswered is who cleans up after the murder?
Once police officers and other law enforcement officials have processed a crime scene, the crime scene cleaning process can begin. While it is often perceived that the police officers or crime scene investigators clean up the crime scene once it has been processed, the reality is that law enforcement officials do not have the means to perform this sort of specialized service. Therefore, the responsibility of cleaning and restoring the crime scene is left largely to that of the family.
