Benjamin Ambrosio - Locard’s Exchange Principle

Benjamin Ambrosio has managed many crime scenes as a police officer working for the New York City Police Department. For over ten years, Ambrosio worked in New York helping to solve crimes and protect his community by engaging with all members and working with all of his fellow officers to improve their service to the community. In his time, he has learned many things about how to manage a crime scene. One of the many principles of managing crime scenes is called Locard’s Exchange Principle, which was drilled into all criminal investigators in the New York Police Department.

Benjamin AmbrosioLocard’s Exchange Principle states that whenever an individual enters or exits an environment, physical material is added or removed from the scene. By following the logic of this principle, crime scene investigators look for all physical evidence in a crime to not only link a particular person to a particular place at a particular time, but also what took place in the place. Investigators take samples from a crime scene to find physical evidence that can link people to places and times, thereby establishing a timeline and facts beyond a reasonable doubt for the courtroom. Benjamin Ambrosio and his hard work had helped dispense justice for the people of his community.

Benjamin Ambrosio has helped many investigators find evidence and solve crimes in many cases during his long career in law enforcement. Crime scene investigations involving gathering physical evidence require many hours of hard work to put together. Ambrosio has helped his fellow officers do the legwork in these cases.
