T & L Products manufactures The Coverup, a clear vinyl cover that is placed over evidence items by the first officer at the crime scene. Features include double-faced tape to adhere to dry surfaces and barbed tabs to engage in vegetation. Properly placed, the Coverup will keep evidence from being contaminated, moved or destroyed. The Coverup should remain over evidence until removed by the investigating officers.
By properly covering all evidence upon entrance at the crime scene with the Coverup, officers strengthen their credibility and maintain integrity of evidence for the courtroom. Properly used, the Coverup should result in more convictions and fewer technical discrepancies.
