Watching cop shows doesn’t help crims do better crimes

Have real-life criminals learnt from television how to better conceal their illegal activities? In the first study of its kind, a team of psychologists at the German research facility Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz have answered in the negative, unable to find evidence of a correlation between watching forensic science TV shows and getting away with committing a crime.

The American TV series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, one of the world’s most popular television programs, focuses on the power and importance of forensic science in the field of law enforcement.

Given such ubiquity, many in law enforcement and judicial circles have speculated on the influence such fictional entertainments might have on the minds of the general public.

Their concerns have even given rise to numerous studies into the so-called “CSI effect”, questioning the extent to which potential jurors may be influenced by such programs.

King City, Greenfield police unite for major crimes

GREENFIELD — King City and Greenfield police departments are joining forces to investigate major crimes in both jurisdictions through a collaborative unit established by the cities to pool resources and solve these cases, with the intent of bringing offenders to justice more swiftly.

King City Council approved the memorandum of understanding between the two cities for a Major Crimes Unit at its Nov. 14 meeting. Greenfield City Council was expected to support the agreement at its special meeting Tuesday night, after press deadlines.

“Violent crimes have been increasingly on the rise, not only in the cities of Greenfield and King City, but in California in general,” said King City Police Chief Robert Masterson in his Nov. 14 report to the council. “At the same time, municipal resources are stretched further and further as more areas of responsibility are pushed to the local level.”

(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – The last thing many kids want to do during their summer break is learn.

Luk Addington, however, isn’t like many kids.

“It was the coolest thing ever,” Luk says of his experience at the National Youth Leadership Form Pathways to STEM camp at Bowling Green State University in Ohio during the week of July 16-21.

The Lawrenceburg Central Elementary 5th grader was nominated by his 4th grade teacher. When asked if he wanted to go, he jumped at the opportunity.

“Because I love robotics and engineering and it’s just really exciting to me,” Luke explains.
