Analysts processing a mock crime scene

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, crime scene photography, arson evidence collection, and audio, video, and image analysis.

In addition to these laboratory initiated programs, our laboratory staff provides training to the WCPD Academy new recruit school, and Zone 3 training sessions.
