It is the mission of the Identification Division of the Big Spring Police Department to respond to crime scenes, record the crime scenes with digital images, recover any evidence to be processed and stored and process for latent prints, shoe prints, tire tracks, blood, and trace evidence,  then record actions taken while on the crime scene by typing a report.  Another part of the Identification Division is fingerprint comparison and classification, making sure that evidence that is to be processed by a lab , is packaged and sent to the proper lab to be processed.  The Crime Scene vehicles are equipped with the instruments to process the crime scene such as fingerprint kits, cameras, gloves, gun shot residue kits, vacuums, metal detectors, casting kits, marking paint and chalk, putrefaction masks, and other crime scene equipment.
