Campers learn facets of law enforcement

In a second-floor classroom of Seminary Hall at Northeastern State University, a few inquisitive minds are considering a life of crime fighting.

During a summer youth camp offered through NSU Continuing Education, the kids are dipping their toes into a multi-faceted pool of careers that includes police departments, sheriffs’ offices, forensics, district attorneys’ offices, corrections, probations and parole, ethics activity and victims advocacy.

All are topics to be discussed with experts during the Criminal Justice Camp, running through Thursday.

“Last year, we did a week-long mock crime,” said Haley Stocks, camp director. “This year, we’ve broken it down so that each day they have a crime to solve. Instead of one big story, they now get exposure to multiple miniature scenarios.”

The Criminal Justice Camp has six campers this year. They are high school students, and some are traveling a distance this week to attend.

“This has been a lot of fun, and my favorite

Apollo-Ridge students learn CSI techniques | TribLIVE – Tribune

Updated 2 hours ago

Abigail Seibert carefully dusted charcoal over a white sheet of paper in her science lab Thursday.

As the minutes went by, faint lines started to appear.

With each stroke the image got clearer and clearer — her fingerprints.

“I’ve never had a class like this,” said Seibert, a senior at Apollo-Ridge High School. “It’s a different kind of science we’re not used to.”

Seibert is studying forensics as part of her natural sciences course this spring. This is the first time the school has had a forensics component.

The students investigated a mock crime scene, identified fingerprints and clothing fibers and took mug shots. They also will take a look at gunshot residue, shoe prints and blood spatter before the end of the year.

Pittsburg middle-schoolers learn about crime scene investigations

PITTSBURG — All they had at their disposal was a crime scene, a witness and a suspect. It took creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking for 18 Rancho Medanos Junior High students to solve the mystery surrounding a mock homicide scenario.

Rancho Medanos history teacher Sergio Verbis is a former Brentwood police sergeant who wanted to give his History Club students a CSI experience they will never forget. So he recently took them to the Pittsburg Police Department for this project-based learning challenge.

The students were divided into groups and asked to collect evidence from three “stations” — a mannequin victim with bullet holes, a witness and a suspect who was told not to respond to them … but who had a gun concealed in her waistband. Led by crime scene experts at the police station, the students used video cameras to document evidence.

According to Verbis, this field trip of investigation was
