1. Secure the Perimeter- crime scene tape, cruisers. personnel, cones
consider multiple layers for media, non-essential personnel
make it large, it is easier to scale down later. remember point of entry and escape.
2. Crime Scene log- Running list of all who enter the scene, date, time in, time, out, purpose. Helps to prevent non-essential personnel from entering the scene
3. Securing physical evidence- protect fragile and transient evidence from weather and other conditions
