Online Course: The Crime Scene Is Fluid

TI International’s Forensic Technology Center for Excellence is holding a free online training, “The Crime Scene Is Fluid: From Land to Water-Based Scenes,” on June 25 at 1 pm EST.

The NIJ-funded course will cover the basic concepts of clandestine grave discovery, control and excavation including for deaths occurring underwater. The course encourages investigators to act as if any water death is a homicide until contrary evidence is uncovered. Participants will learn water search techniques in order to better understand dive team procedures in underwater crime scenes and be more able to manage them from land.

Registration is free, sign up now.
