There are a total of 71 Evidence Collectibles and 21 Suspects with Warrants in Battlefield Hardline. Finding all the evidence is required for completing the Case Files.
Getting all Collectibles will earn you the following trophies and achievements:
Keep Digging, Detective [Bronze / 20G]
True Detective [Silver / 25G]
World's Greatest Detective [Gold / 50G]
Bring 'em to Justice [Silver / 25G]
You must use your scanner to collect the pieces of evidence. It will make a buzzing sound when a collectible is nearby. The scanner will also highlight evidence in the game world when aiming at it and can be used to tag suspects with warrants. Equipping the scanner will show how many pieces of evidence can be found in the current area and there's an arrow in the top left corner that shows the distance to the next evidence and points you to it.
After you have completed a case file by finding all the required evidence you will unlock new weapons and equipment.
None of the collectibles are missable! You can get them via chapter select at any time. You don't have to pick them up again if you die. All progress is saved instantly and you can quit out to the main menu without having to reach the next checkpoint. To arrest suspects with warrants you must use non-lethal means (taser or handcuffs).
The Prologue and Episode 5 "Gauntlet" don't have any collectibles at all. There are 10 episodes in total.
