Sparta Police Department 4th Annual Junior Police Academy Already Full, Much More To Come

On August 23rd, the Sparta Police Department will host its 4th annual Junior Police Academy.  The interactive program, directed towards Sparta youth in grades 5th through 8th, has already hit their maximum number of participants.

 

Sparta Lieutenant John Lamon attributes the growth to the changes made in the program last year, designing it to be more interactive and fun.  Last year’s Academy reached its maximum enrollment just a week before the camp started. This year, they reached it well over a month before.

 

Kids who attended last year participated in crime scene investigation, finger printing, an escape room, canine investigation, and more over the course of the three days.

Lebanon Police to hire department’s first full-time CSI | CBS 4 …

Lebanon, Ind – The Lebanon Police department is looking to hire the first full-time Crime Scene Investigator in the department’s history.

Lebanon Police Chief Tyson Warmoth says the move was made possible after Boone County recently passed a half-percent increase in local income taxes, earmarked for public safety funding.

“The need’s been there for a long time, we just didn’t have the financial means to fill it,” Warmoth said.

The new CSI will be a civilian without police arresting powers, but will work alongside the departments investigations division to solve crimes.

“They’ll be the ones responsible for lifting fingerprints,” Warmoth said.  “They’ll be the ones responsible for photographing the scene, no matter how horrific.”

Warmoth says he’s looking for someone with a methodical, meticulous approach to documenting crime scenes and handling evidence.  The CSI will have to strictly follow laws regarding handling of evidence and the chain of custody while overseeing the department’s property room.
