Overview

This course is designed to introduce learners to some of the skills and techniques used in the investigation of crime scenes. A mock crime scene will be set up by the tutor. Students will be asked to examine this scene, whilst observing the protocols designed to prevent cross contamination. Key pieces of evidence then need to be identified and retrieved, making sure to fully document the process.

The course has three learning outcomes:

  • Understand how to survey a crime scene.
  • Be able to examine evidence collected at a crime scene.
  • Understand how to use results of evidence tests.
