The Waynesburg University Department of Criminal Justice and Social Sciences will host its annual spring Mock Crime Scene event Saturday, March 19, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on the University’s campus. The event is directed toward high school students interested in criminal justice, law enforcement, forensic science or Waynesburg University in general.

Students and parents will gather in Stover Campus Center at the start of the event for an in-briefing, and then separate activities will be offered for parents, while participating students spend the morning in sessions with experts in various fields. Students will rotate through four stations featuring guest presenters, who vary from year to year and may include experts in ballistics, DNA collection, fingerprints, forensic analysis, prosecution and more. Lunch is provided, and students and parents may meet after lunch with the Office of Admissions for campus tours or to ask any questions.

James Tanda, instructor of criminal justice and coordinator of the event, said the goal of the event is to raise awareness among high school students about Waynesburg’s major disciplines related to criminal justice.

“It is also designed to clear up myths and misconceptions often exhibited on television and give the 16- to 18-year-old students firsthand exposure to professionals and the methods used in current day crime scene investigation,” said Tanda.

Interested students can contact the Office of Admissions or Bob Barnhart, admissions counselor, at 724-852-3346 for more information or to reserve a spot for the event. Space is limited.

The Waynesburg University Department of Chemistry and Forensic Science and the Office of Admissions will host a fall Mock Crime Scene Workshop Saturday, Nov. 14, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 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 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 sessions 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 juniors and seniors attend the event.

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. 

The Workshop introduces prospective criminal justice students to the practical application of crime scene investigation, forensic analysis and related criminal investigative methods by law enforcement from local, state and federal levels who partner with the University’s Department of Criminal Justice. 

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 students who have an interest in this profession get a firsthand look at the reality of crime scene investigation while also networking with professionals in the field of criminal justice, law enforcement, and forensic sciences,” said James Tanda, instructor of criminal justice at Waynesburg University.  “The University also benefits by the inherent recruitment of many of these students who decide to choose Waynesburg’s Criminal Justice program after attending this and similar CSI Camps at the our University.”

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. 

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