This is a hands-on introduction to the science and laboratory techniques of law enforcement.
Lab topics include crime scenes, tool marks, chemical analysis, counterfeit documents, dental impressions, fiber identifications, fingerprints, glass fractures, handwriting analysis, forgeries, ink chromatography, shoe prints, forensic anthropology, blood splatter patterns, and DNA electrophoresis.
As a final project, each class attempts to solve a simulated crime using the forensic techniques learned.
