Scene of crime officers

Scene of crime officers are the first responders at the crime scenes. They are trained from the Forensic Science Laboratory. The job of these specialised police officers is to visit crime scenes, send evidences to forensic labs and aid police officers in the evidence collection process.
The Karnataka State Police, for the first time, will be inducting around 200 SOC officers. They will only be involved in crimes that are of serious nature. More such officers will be recruited to be used during all investigations. The practice of recruiting such specialists can be observed in countries like the US and the UK.
