Metal Detector Resource

The Metal Detector Resource helps Contra Costa County law enforcement agencies search crime scenes for metallic evidence. Often, finding a piece of a bullet or other evidence involved in a crime can make the difference between a conviction and acquittal.

The Metal Detector Resource may be asked to locate and recover shell casings, bullet fragments and bullets, firearms, buried evidence and stolen property.

Members may work with ground searchers, divers and canine teams, with each resource adding to and complementing the others’ skills and capabilities.
