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.
