Abstract
DRDC Ottawa is leading a project designed in part to develop protocols for forensic investigators working in a radiologically contaminated environment. As such, a radiological field exercise was held to review current forensic investigator methods and identify problem areas with respect to the collection of evidence from a contaminated crime scene. The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC), DRDC Ottawa, Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the Ottawa Police Service (OPS) CBRN Forensic Investigation Specialists participated in the exercise. This document provides a description of the scenario and the responder actions during the exercise, and gives lessons learned and recommendations that will feed directly into the forensic investigator protocols.
