Processing a crime scene requires numerous skills. This three-day course will employ hands-on exercises focusing on the recognition, documentation, recovery, and preservation of physical evidence. Practical application of the techniques and procedures learned will be demonstrated through a mock crime scene exercise conducted on the last day of the program. This course will benefit patrol officers and new members of crime scene specialty units with minimal crime scene investigation experience.
Participants should wear casual clothing that could become soiled during practical exercises. Students are required to bring a digital camera (digital SLR preferred), standard lens, macro lens (if available), batteries for camera and flash, digital media, off camera flash, remote flash cord, tripod, and a flashlight.
