Crime Scene Cleanup

When a crime occurs in a residence or vehicle, the Board may reimburse any individual who pays, or assumes the obligation to pay, reasonable costs to clean the scene of the crime in an amount not to exceed $1,000. (GC § 13957(a)(9))

The Board may only reimburse crime scene cleanup expenses provided by an individual or company registered with the Department of Health Services as a trauma scene waste management practitioner. See the California Department of Health's Trauma Scene Waste Management Practitioners page for a list of registered practitioners.
