Crime Scene Investigations

This course is for both crime scene technicians and investigators, both novice and experienced. The purpose of the course is to provide extensive hands-on training for police personnel, including crime scene technicians. Crime scene technicians are specially trained to assist police personnel in criminal investigations, as well as attorneys prosecuting the case. Many topics will not only be introduced through PowerPoint lectures and handouts, but all objectives will have a hands-on component to ensure that all attendees accomplish the objectives. Your instructors, both of which are certified in crime scene investigations, have almost 40 years of combined experience and teach real world application in this hands-on workshop.

Topics to include:

  • Documenting crime scenes through photography, sketching and note taking
  • Fingerprinting
  • Shooting reconstruction
  • Collection of evidence
  • Trace evidence detection through alternate light sources
  • Shoe wear impressions, casting
  • Death investigations
  • Legal aspects of criminal investigations
