This newly renovated space offers space to learn forensic science techniques and their application to security and intelligence investigations.
In these labs, students conduct experiments and examinations using scientific disciplines in anthropology, entomology, ballistics, and serology, while also learning to perform firearms examinations, blood spatter and bullet trajectory experiments, and trace evidence examinations.
Students learn to take and develop fingerprints, conduct crime scene searches, and collect physical evidence — techniques put to the test once per semester when all students participate in a comprehensive outdoor crime scene regardless of weather conditions.
During this exercise, they collect and process physical evidence and perform the appropriate forensic laboratory tests on the recovered items. These labs feature various forensic test kits and materials, including 18 stereoscopic microscopes and a comparison microscope.
