Spring Hill High hosts student Forensic Sciences Competition

SPRING HILL Scenes of murder, domestic violence and arrests took place at the Northfield Workforce Development Conference Center on Wednesday, but, thankfully, it was all just a drill.

The future law enforcement agents put their knowledge of criminal justice to the test here in Maury County for Spring Hill High School’s annual Forensic Sciences Competition.

In the two-day event, the high school students from 18 schools worked in teams, competing in activities related to law enforcement.

They were tested on their ability to investigate a mock crime scene, using the same standards and procedures employed by law enforcement including examining an object for fingerprints and recording those prints, conducting roadside sobriety tests, making a traffic stop with an armed felon, responding to a domestic assault call and holding appellate court.

“It gives them a lot of leadership,” Spring Hill High School’s criminal justice instructor

Forensic work is nothing like ‘glamourous CSI’, say CID crime scene specialists

A lifeless body was found lying on a floor with a pool of blood trickling near the head of the “victim”. Gambling paraphernalia was strewn on a table next to the body. One police investigator lifted a shoe print at the scene while another dusted a broken safe with fingerprint powder in search of evidence of a suspected crime.

These two investigators are crime scene specialists who were demonstrating a crime scene investigation at the Singapore Police Force’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Forensic Conference on Thursday (9 November).

Senior crime specialist Geraldine Ng, 30, told reporters that she has encountered people who are interested in pursuing a career in forensics. But she stressed to them that the nature of her job is nothing like the hit television show CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

What forensic pathology services are

The Forensic Pathology Service (FPS) in the Western Cape was established in 2006 when the South African Police Service Mortuaries transferred to Western Cape Government Health and the Directorate Forensic Pathology Services was established within the Department of Health. The FPS unit under the control of Western Cape Government Health, is a service that is rendered to families of deceased and to the South African Police Service.

FPS plays a pivotal role in the fragile health care system, particularly at the end of the life cycle. Their role is to collect the remains, and conduct autopsies if and when it is needed. There is a misconception that all deceased bodies need to be autopsied, but this is not the case.

People who die from natural causes such as heart attacks and old age are often not autopsied. However, there are instances when a medical doctor or family may

The Night Of….

January 3rd 2012 was an evening that started out as a jovial evening among friends, but unfortunately turned into a bloodbath. On that fateful day, three men were enjoying a meal around a fire, at a camping area in Sarasota, Florida, when an argument broke out between two of them. Although witnesses in the area instantly called police, unfortunately they were too late. The suspect, wielding a machete, had fled the scene after murdering his friend.

One witness stayed back, and told his version of the evening. However, to figure out exactly what happened Investigators employed infrared imaging. By examining the blood spatter on the clothing of the victim, witnesses and suspects, as well
