About the Event
Forensics never goes away! It’s everywhere and every contact leaves a trace. This workshop will take you behind the scenes as a crime scene investigator, so that you will get a greater understanding of what type of evidence is preserved from the scene and used effectively in Court, and the importance of the chain of evidence, plus an insight into how to deal with expert forensic witnesses.
During this practical hands-on workshop, you will have the opportunity to interact with a Forensic Practitioner and Fingerprint Expert in a purpose-built Crime Centre. This integrated experience is the first of its kind in New Zealand.
- Learn more about the fundamentals of major crime scenes, the different types of trace evidence that can be found and how they should be developed and preserved.
- Increase your knowledge of the chain of evidence procedures for exhibits thus providing you with a greater understanding of how to address these issues in trial.
- Gain an insight into how Forensic Scene Examiners conduct their investigations within the crime scene.
