Do the police clean up crime scenes?

It is a common questions and the simple answer is no and for reason. The police are considered public servants but as employees there is a reasonable expectation to keep them safe. Blood at a crime scene is considered a biohazard and this hazardous substance can be difficult to clean even for people with the proper training like a crime scene cleanup company has with trained trauma cleaners. Police in contract are well trained to investigate the crime and they may come into a murder scene to investigate what happened and to take evidence but they do not have the training to clean up a crime scene.

So what do you do what you have a crime scene that needs cleaned. Most cities across the country are serviced by a few companies that have a strong network of crime scene cleaners. These cleaners now only know how to clean the blood up, but they also hold other important credentials. Some licenses needed will include the ability to transport biohazard on highways and one that allows them to be able to dispose of biohazard waste.

Many crime scene cleanup companies work closely with police to make sure families know who to call. A murder scene is a terrible trauma to experience but can you imagine being expected to clean up the blood and other bodily fluids from a family member? Thankfully crime scene cleaning is a business that continues to grow and be an essential business in cities across the nation.
