Field ET Program
To assure the utmost care in the collection and preservation of evidence at crime scenes, the Orland Park Police Department utilizes evidence technicians (ETs) and field ETs. An ET is a police officer, who is generally an investigator, that is trained in the accepted methods of evidence collection, preservation, and processing. Their primary responsibility is to process a crime scene.

A field ET is an experienced police officer who is trained in acceptable methods of evidence collection, preservation, and processing, but has primary responsibilities as a patrol officer. The use of field ET allows the rapid response of an ET to any crime scene.
