Valley teens learn about careers in law enforcement, medical response

WEYERS CAVE, Va. (WHSV) — Students from more than a dozen high schools are learning about jobs in law enforcement and emergency medical response from the professionals themselves.

Blue Ridge Community College partnered with the Central Shenandoah Criminal Justice Training Academy to invite local authorities and first response teams to talk with a group of teens about a wide range of subjects — including crime scene investigation, cyber security, forensics and the correctional system.

One of the top goals of the program is to get students thinking about a possible career before graduation.

A focus on law enforcement is particularly relevant, amid reports of unfilled positions at Virginia police stations.

Andrew McNally, the director of the Central Shenandoah Criminal Justice Training Academy, says there’s been a drop in the pool of applicants for law enforcement positions.

“It’s kind of harder to find people who want to go into law enforcement,” he said, “with

Students learn crime scene investigation at SOSS

Southern Okanagan Secondary School has introduced a new course that has students use forensics to investigate crime scenes.

By Marlysse Trampf

Southern Okanagan Secondary School (SOSS) is turning into a crime scene with an exciting new class.

In recent years there have been some interesting new courses introduced to SOSS’s curriculum that are really piquing students’ interest. Perhaps the most popular is Gordon Wurflinger’s Forensics 11 class.
“The class looks at the science of forensics, to see what forensic scientists look at when dealing with different types of evidence,” he said.

The class begins by building on the students’ science skills, and there’s a bit of physics, chemistry, biology (for entomology) as well as using microscopes.

Once the students have a base knowledge of basic crime scene investigation, they will start simulating crime scenes for each other to analyze. Case studies are another

High school students learn about forensic science at summer camp

WEST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – High school students got to be forensic scientists for the day at the University of New Haven‘s Crime Scene Investigation Camp.

This is not your typical summer camp. High school students from across the country spent the week learning about forensic science, then applying what they learned on Friday.

“They are very eager to come out and participate because it ties everything together that we’ve done over the last 30 hours or so in the classroom,” said Peter Massey, program coordinator and lecturer for UNH’s forensic science undergraduate program.

Friday was the most exciting day of their week. Students processed two crime scenes at UNH’s Crime Scene House. There were bodies, blood spatter and drugs – all fake. The idea was to make everything look as real as possible. It was very real for the kids.

“I was so excited. I am excited. I’m happy that I

Autopsies, evidence, footprints and more: Teens learn about police work through program

Unlike the popular “CSI” television shows or Hollywood movies, it doesn’t actually take two hours or less to solve a crime, according to the Santa Maria Police Department. 

This week, 16 youngsters from 12 to 17 years old are learning the ins and outs of police work at the department’s Teen Police Academy program, which is designed to give insight into the life of a law enforcement officer.

The training, which Officer Sam Gwo likened to a “fun, educational summer camp for kids,” had been around for years, took a hiatus and returned in 2016.

“We think it’s important in this day and age for kids to learn the details of police work because our past and present chiefs believe community policing should be a huge part of Santa Maria,” Gwo said. 

“So what better way to interact with the community than a program like this?” 

On Thursday, the kids learned about the painstaking steps behind
