R2 Basic Crime Scene Investigation – Meridian

Course Number: 114

Fundamentals of CSI Course Flyer

Daily Class Schedule

Course Description:

Crime scenes related to illegal narcotics present unique issues for investigators. Because drug crime scenes could potentially lead to transnational narco-terrorism investigations, specific drug-related crime scene investigation training is essential. Expectations of the public and the courts have risen dramatically over the last several years in the area of physical evidence collection. Working a drug-related crime scene is a process that involves a broad range of skill sets with a heavy emphasis on intelligence analysis, evidence collection, and an understanding of the laboratory analyst’s capabilities. Evidence collection and chain of custody are essential to building a case for the successful prosecution of transnational drug trafficking organizations.

The purpose of this course is to train law enforcement personnel, especially counternarcotics officers with the skills needed to locate, identify, document, collect and preserve any crime scene evidence with an emphasis on drug-related evidence. Drug related cases can also lead to other crimes such as thefts, robberies, arson, shootings and even homicides. Upon completion of this training, the student will possess the fundamental skills necessary to process any crime scene and collect a variety of different types of physical evidence, and in particular, drug-related crime scenes.
