The Forensic Science Laboratory routinely conducts training sessions for local law enforcement agencies in how to apply state of the art technologies to the examination of evidence and crime scenes.

Specialized workshops cover topics such as DNA laboratory capabilities, the use of CODIS in investigations, collection and packaging of physical evidence, impression evidence, bloodstain pattern analysis, crime scene photography, arson evidence collection, and audio, video / image analysis.

In addition to these laboratory initiated programs, our laboratory staff regularly participates in providing training for the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program, the WCPD Academy new recruit school and Zone 3 training sessions.

The training staff consists of laboratory analysts and others in the field of Forensic science many of whom hold positions as adjunct instructors in Forensic Science at local area colleges and are DCJS certified instructors.
