The Investigative Checklists are in PDF format and may be downloaded for Law Enforcement's assistance.
Please note that the General Requirements section from each specific checklist has been eliminated; therefore,
the General Requirements checklist, the first listed below, should be used in conjunction with each specific crime
sheet. For most of these crimes, we have added an elements section, written like a "to convict", a parsing of
the statutory language. We feel that the items required under the Specific Requirements or Specific
Considerations make more sense when viewed in conjunction with the statutory elements, defenses,
and definitions of certain legal terms. If you have questions or comments regarding the checklists,
please call the Snohomish County Prosecutor's Office (425) 388- 3333.
