R4 Crime Scene Awareness for First Responders- Pocatello CANCELLED

Course Number: R4114

Course Description:

Our program teaches the importance of forensic identifiers and the procedures for processing and applying these identifiers to the department’s information database and methods to protect the chain of evidence.

Exploitation involves the immediate collection, prioritization of items of potential evidence value and recording the information. This program will familiarize the student with the ability to properly process a site for evidence value without contaminating or destroying important information. They will understand the different formats of reports and how they are dictated for courtroom testimony and directives based on the student’s departmental protocols. They will learn how to process, log, categorize, and exploit gained information to the best of their abilities in support of the criminal case and how to pass it through the chain of command to the appropriate level for inclusion into case file and intelligence records.

Crime Scene Awareness training is designed to give the 1st responder the ability to recognize, identify and preserve evidence at any scene and the surrounding environment where a crime has been committed. The student will learn the proper procedures to protect crime scenes by observing, analyzing, and understanding indicators left by nature and human activity.

This course was developed as a training program that gives the student the ability to increase their evidence identification & collection skills with up to an 80% increase in effectiveness. It enhances performance in observation skills and situational awareness. The foundation of the course centers on teaching the students various forms of visual recognition skills used to observe, locate, and interpret crime scenes.

Since humans by nature tend to follow predictable patterns of behavior, these signatures can be readily identified and exploited by the keen observer. Being able to apply this knowledge while assessing crime scenes will give students the ability to accurately identify actions, intentions, and motives of suspects.
