Police academy gives teens up-close look at crime-fighting

Daimarys Lopez paced a cordoned-off scene at Intracoastal Park Clubhouse, holding yellow evidence flags while searching for 24 rifle shell casings.

The 15-year-old walked slowly in circles, over and over, before placing flags next to three scattered shells.

Lopez was one of 22 teens who took part Wednesday in a make-believe crime scene through Boynton Beach Police Department’s ninth annual Teen Police Academy, a weeklong camp teaching youth about local law enforcement.

“I found it a good experience and an interesting way to learn,” Lopez said. “It seems really interesting and fun to do everyday.”

The teens acted as crime-scene investigators and had the opportunity to see that “it’s not like what you see on TV,” said Tina Stidham, a Boynton police crime-scene investigator. “It’s a lot more realistic.”

Stidham led a presentation with Rob Eichorst, also a crime-scene investigator.

Trooper Youth Week gives students a taste of law enforcement training

SEA GIRT — Trooper Youth Week, five days of grueling training for high school juniors, isn’t for the faint of heart.

Ask any of the 138 young men and women who opted to forego cell phones and other electronics to instead choose to experience life as a recruit for the New Jersey State Police.

For those who graduated the 104th class of Trooper Youth Week on Friday, the long hours, taxing drills and classroom lectures was worth giving up a sliver of their summer – and their favorite pastimes.

“It’s a life-changing thing and I’m glad I’ve chosen to do it,” said Dyon Womack, 17, of Howell.

Hundreds of cases, thousands of calls: Sheriff’s department gives review of 2016

The Clay County Sheriffs Department had a year of unique investigations in 2016, including multiple deaths, arsons, major sex crimes, suicides and auto thefts along with more than 330 other cases.

Its a hectic job, said Chief Deputy Josh Clarke about the work done by the staff of 15 officers, including himself and Sheriff Paul Harden. Were out there 24-hours a day, 365 days a year, working to keep our community safe. I dont really think the public fully understands the job that law enforcement officers do.

Since 2000, popular television shows like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Forensic Files has unrealistically influenced the publics perception by exaggerating how quickly forensic science can solve an investigation. Known as the CSI Effect, the public has developed higher expectations for law enforcements capabilities.

Clarke says it just doesnt work that way in real life.

3D Scanning Gives Law Enforcement Agencies More Than Just the Big Picture

When it comes to impressing jurors, crime scene investigators are feeling the pressure to live up to the high-tech expectations set by TV shows like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

“The jury wants the crime scene unit to come to court and do the CSI stuff they see on TV. And if we don’t, they are totally disappointed. If we don’t wow them with what they call the CSI factor, they’re not interested,” says Lt. Anthony McConnell of the Crime Scene Unit at the Harris County (Texas) Sheriff’s Office.

Thankfully, 3D scanning not only impresses jurors with the latest cutting-edge technology, but also allows for hyper-realistic crime scene analysis, which lets state and local law enforcement agencies provide evidence in incredibly specific detail.

“If you want a detailed photo of the headstamp of a shell casing, to show that it’s a .40-caliber round, you can do that,” says McConnell. “If we measure
