Calling all future crime scene investigators! Participants in our Crime Scene Investigator’s camp will conduct exercises involving techniques from the forensic laboratory and crime scene processing. They will process and document mock crime scenes using real-world techniques and equipment. They will analyze evidence obtained and practice developing fingerprints, casting shoe impressions, analyzing hair and fiber evidence and examining handwriting for forgeries. They will use their new knowledge to identify a perpetrator of the crime and put him or her on trial. In addition, visitors from law enforcement agencies such as the Charlotte- Mecklenburg Police Department, the FBI, Secret Service and others may make short presentations.
