Investigative Analysis and Crime Scene Reconstruction

This course is hosted by the Vancouver Police Department. 

Investigative Analysis and Crime Scene Reconstruction is a challenging, forty hour course, designed by veteran field experts for detectives, crime scene investigators, evidence technicians, and others involved in crime analysis. Through both lecture and practical exercises, investigators expand their skill sets by learning and practicing accepted, tested methodologies for objective analysis of evidence. This is not a crime scene processing course; it is, rather, an exploration of expanded ways of thinking about information and evidentiary relationships in investigations.

Attendees should bring an electronic device with USB connection and basic office suite software, such as a laptop computer, to access, prepare and save digital work product, case materials, and complete fillable forms used in lecture and practical exercises.
