Fingerprinting

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Tue, 10/05/2021 - 08:48

When Police take a suspect into custody, the suspect's name," mug" shot, and fingerprints are taken.

 This is known as the booking process. Criminal Justice students practiced taking fingerprints of a " suspect".   Students took turns fingerprinting and being fingerprinted using a 10- part fingerprint card; the same used by law enforcement.

Also, students practiced developing and lifting fingerprints from various objects using black fingerprint powder.

 What a fun, informative activity the students were able to take part in.

Forensic Lab Fun

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Fri, 10/01/2021 - 08:28

Edmond Locard said that there is always something left at a crime scene and something is taken away.  This is called trace evidence.  Medical Forensic students looked at a small portion of trace evidence in today's class.  Students did a packing tab lab.  Students put tape on the bottom of their shoes and looked at the tape under a microscope.  What did they pick up?  Something from everywhere they have been this morning.

Wet Mount Lab in Forensic Science

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Wed, 09/22/2021 - 13:37

Have you ever wondered what a bug looks like magnified? Today in Medical Forensics students learned to use microscopes to see just that. 

They learned to use their microscope by looking at bugs.  Wings, legs, bodies, heads, and eyes. 

Bugs were brought in by students and then the students chose which body part they wanted to look at and prepared a slide for the microscope.  The bug was viewed on three different magnifications, and students took pictures and were asked to draw what they saw.
