Event description

Description

Physical evidence is not subjective. It does not lie, forget, or distort.

Thorough crime scene investigation is vitally important to effective law enforcement. The purpose of this course of instruction is to provide police officers with instruction on the awareness, documentation, preservation and collection of physical evidence and basic crime scene processing procedures.

The course will cover information outlined in the Physical Evidence Handbook published by the Vermont Forensic Laboratory, as well as, other information obtained from training aids and hands on practical exercises.

By the end of the class, each officer will have to demonstrate that they can perform a number of skills, to include, dust for and lift developed latent prints, swab for biological collection purposes, make a cast of a tool/tool mark impression, and make a tire and/or foot wear impression using dental stone.

NOTE: This is a “hands-on” training. Students should wear appropriate clothing that they do not mind possibly getting dirty. Students will also be going outside and thus should prepare to dress accordingly.
