Forensic Investigation

The Forensic Investigation Concentration in the Criminal Justice program teaches students the skills necessary to preserve at the crime scene and evaluate evidence in the laboratory. Get an inside look into what happens from a crime scene to the lab – with mock simulations of crime scene processing and evidence evaluations.

Forensic science is a critical element of the criminal justice system. Forensic scientists examine and analyze evidence from crime scenes and elsewhere to develop objective findings that can assist in the investigation and prosecution of perpetrators of crime or absolve an innocent person from suspicion.

Crime scene investigators document the crime scene which includes:

  • take photographs and physical measurements of the scene
  • identify and collect forensic evidence
  • and maintain the proper chain of custody of that evidence
