SHIPPING EVIDENCE AND/OR FIREARMS TO ME FOR EXAMINATION
It is imperative that I use my own equipment to conduct firearms and evidence examination. This equipment is not mobile so items of evidence will need to be released to my custody for a period of time to be examined. All my equipment is personally maintained and calibrated to NIST Standards.
I do not permit anyone to be in my lab and stand over my shoulder while I examine evidence - this is not considered as being an independent examination.
I do not perform destructive testing unless there is prior written approval from the court or law enforcement agency; all evidence is returned in the same unaltered and unmodified condition that it was received.
