Unfortunately, after a murder or other serious violent crime, the police and investigators do not have a special unit that comes in to clean up the scene. While some departments may work closely with crime scene cleaning services and may be able to offer referrals, the responsibility of cleaning the crime scene falls to the property owner.
Many crimes that later require cleaning happen in the home, which leaves the task of cleaning all too often to the victim’s next of kin. However, if the crime happens in a rental home, place of business, or the like, responsibility falls to the property owner. Likewise, if the crime has taken place on public property, the state or local entity who maintains the property is responsible.
