Scene Investigations

The scene of a fire or traffic accident holds information that is critical to understanding what happened, how it happened, and who was involved. Without a systematic scene investigation, that critical information could be lost forever. C.R. Cochran & Associates can provide you with this essential type of investigation.


Chuck Cochran, the owner of C.R. Cochran & Associates, has extensive training in the assessment, documentation and processing of various types of incident scenes, and holds California Peace Officer Standards and Training certificates in Evidence Technology, Forensic Photography, and Advanced Forensic Photography.


Your scene investigation will include a scene assessment to determine the scope of the scene investigation, scene documentation with photographs and diagrams, and evidence collection and preservation.
