Fundamentals of Crime Scene Examination and Evidence Collection
From Monday, May 22 2017
To Friday, May 26 2017
Every day

 Sponsor: Ron Smith and Associates

Description: This five day crime scene course provides instruction in the identification, processing, preservation and recovery of physical evidence including:  scene responsibilities, crime lab capabilities, scene equipment, scene and evidence photography, searching & measuring, biological & trace evidence, footwear & tire evidence, fingerprint processing and handwriting evidence.  Expectations of the public and the courts have risen dramatically over the last several years in the area of physical evidence collection and forensic identification.  Working a crime scene is a "process" that involves a broad range of skills.  With these issues in mind, the purpose of this course is to train crime scene personnel in the skills needed to identify, photograph, process and preserve the crime scene and items of evidence found in them.  The course is intended to provide a foundation for the future development of such expertise through experience and continued training. Attendees will receive
lecture and demonstrations along with participating in class discussions and performing practical exercises to demonstrate acquired skills.
