This course is an in-depth analysis and discussion of the nature and significance of various types of physical evidence commonly found at crime scenes. Areas of emphasis include: (1) the use of physical evidence in the forensic setting, (2) types of physical evidence, (3) the identification, collection and packaging of physical evidence, (4) principles of crime scene photography, (5) crime scene sketching, (6) evidence collection techniques: casting shoe and tool marks, lifting latent fingerprints and (7) the preservation of trace evidence, i.e. physiological fluids, hair, soil, fibers, glass, etc. This course combines the theoretical concepts associated with use of physical evidence in the forensic setting with student involvement in the processing of simulated crime scenes. The lab component, which will focus on the student applying the principles learned in lectures, will be mandatory. C-ID AJ 150, CSU
