Radiological crime scene management is the process used to ensure safe, secure, effective and efficient operations at a crime
scene where nuclear or other radioactive materials are known, or suspected, to be present. Managing a radiological crime scene
is a key part of responding to a nuclear security event. Evidence collection at radiological crime scenes may share a wide
range of characteristics with that at conventional crime scenes, such as evidence search patterns, geographical scene modelling
and evidence recording, whether or not explosives are involved. This publication focuses on the framework and functional elements
for managing a radiological crime scene that are distinct from any other crime scene. It assumes that states have a capability
for managing conventional crime scenes.
