Examination Request Procedures

To request assistance from the Digital Forensics Investigations Unit, please call to schedule a time for drop off. Before you arrive, you will need to make sure you have a copy of the legal authority which authorizes the examination of the device(s) you are submitting. No evidence will be accepted without proper legal authority at the time of submission.

When you arrive, you will be asked to fill out a submission request form. This form can be filled out ahead of time by visiting our Documents and Forms page here. Please be as detailed as possible so that we can better assist you during the examination. If your case needs to be expedited, please let us know at the time of submission.

During the submission process, you will be provided a DFI Control number. Please keep this for your reference, as this is the best way to look up the status of your case.

Case intake hours are from 8a – 4p. If there are special circumstances in which assistance is needed outside of these hours, please contact us ahead of time to discuss.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at 713-274-5920.
