Crime Scene Reconstruction
APPLICANTS MUST BE EMPLOYED AS A CRIMINALIST OR FORENSIC SCIENTIST IN AN ACCREDITED LABORATORY. This one-week (38-hour) course develops the crime scene reconstruction skills introduced in Crime Scene Investigation II (S211). The students are introduced to concepts of reconstruction through a series of documented scenes which are designed to develop their reconstruction analysis skills. The students should also have taken Bloodstain Analysis and Trajectory Analysis classes or have considerable crime scene investigation experience. The graduates of this class should be able to work independently at crime scenes and to reconstruct the events of a crime from proper documentation materials. Each student will be asked to bring documentation and reports from a reconstruction case for class discussion and evaluation. Each class is limited to 24 students.
