Calling all armchair detectives! Do you enjoy watching mysteries or shows dedicated to crime scene investigation? If so, this class is for you!
Join facilitator Lynne Dean, a retired Latent Fingerprint Examiner with the King County Sheriff’s Office, as she explores how crime scenes are processed for evidence. Students will learn how a forensic fingerprint laboratory works and discuss photographs from real crime scenes. You’ll also participate in hands-on exercises at home to give you a true “feel” for working with evidence and discover how to distinguish fact from fiction when it comes to your favorite CSI-style TV shows. Student participation is encouraged.
Prerequisites: This class is for students 18+, as some of the content and photos is considered graphic. Students will need a 4 inch piece of clear plastic – for example, cut from a sheet protector – and a 4 or 5 inch piece of clear/Scotch Tape to participate in two hands-on exercises.
