Cell Phone Examination Request

Due to the large volume of examination requests received by the DSU-CCI it is necessary to implement a new evidence intake process. Beginning August 1st 2016 all evidence submitted to the DSU-CCI lab must follow this new procedure. Any evidence submitted to the lab without a DSU-CCI assigned case number and submission form will be returned.

The DSU-CCI lab specializes in the chip-off process. Before submitting a device for chip-off be aware of how the courts in your area view the process. A best practice is to include chip-off verbiage in your warrant.

Submitting a device for examination

The DSU-CCI accepts mobile devices for examination from US law enforcement agencies. We accept computers on a limited basis from Utah based agencies only. See below for cost.
