The Mock Crime Scene Workshop provides high school students the opportunity to analyze crime scenes and collect and process evidence alongside Waynesburg University students and faculty, as well as experts in the field. 

Students will gain hands-on training from skilled experts in the forensic sciences and have the opportunity to utilize those practices by applying them at a crime scene. The vast array of workshops offered will help students to determine if they can see a forensic science or criminal justice career in their futures. 

“The Mock Crime Scene weekend gives the current students, faculty and staff the opportunity to meet prospective students and show them, through experience, what they can expect by attending Waynesburg University,” said Faith Musko, instructor of forensic science. “Our goal is to excite them about our programs, the opportunities available to them and assist them with making lasting connections with our community.” 

Every year, typically more than 40 current high school sophomores, juniors and seniors attend the event.

b2ap3_thumbnail_CSI-Resized.jpgThe Waynesburg University Department of Criminal Justice and Social Sciences and the Office of Admissions will host the spring Mock Crime Scene Workshop Saturday, March 29, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

The Mock Crime Scene Workshop provides high school students the opportunity to analyze crime scenes and collect and process evidence alongside Waynesburg University students and faculty, as well as experts in the field. 

Students will attend technical workshops in the morning and then apply what they've learned in mock crime scenes or active response scenarios in the afternoon. Workshops related to arrest techniques, interview and interrogation practices and a firearms training simulator will also be offered.

“The goal of the event is to provide the high school students with a better perspective of what careers in law enforcement and forensic science are really like,” said Michael Cipoletti, assistant professor of forensic science. “Hopefully we are helping students determine if criminal justice or forensics is a viable option for them to pursue as a major course of study.”

Under the instruction of University students, faculty and representatives from the Pennsylvania State Police, by the end of the day, students will be able to apply the principles and techniques learned to a challenging crime scene. 

To register, or for more information, contact the Office of Admissions at 800-225-7393.
