The number one reason why most crime scene investigations are unsuccessful is because there was inadequate crime scene processing and analysis. Working a crime scene, whether major or minor, is a process that involves a wide range of skills. This 5-day course was developed as a refresher workshop for crime scene investigators, or for the new officer with limited exposure and experience in crime scene processing. The detection, collection, documentation, and preservation of physical evidence are key elements involved in every crime scene. This course will demonstrate and elaborate on techniques that may or may not have been acquired in the field and will assist in developing new techniques in crime scene examinations. Forensic science is forever changing and improving, and new techniques and equipment are constantly being developed to assist the law enforcement officer with the challenges of the “every scene, every time” concept.
