Crime Scene Protocols

An introduction to crime scene personnel and procedures.  This is the first lesson in my Crime Scene Protocols unit. It takes students through what happens once a first responder has determined that, yes, we have a crime scene here!  Then the CSI team gets called in and the process of documenting the scene and properly collecting any evidence must begin.

In addition to the prezi I give my students the following note guide to fill in as I go through the lecture.  You can download the note guide as a PDF below.

In practice…

This lecture takes approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on how much detail and examples are given.  There is a 10-minute youtube video embedded in the prezi that details methods for picking up trace evidence from carpet.
