    TRITECH Forensics Training: Death Investigations: November 4-8, 2024
    View the Full Flyer

    Death investigation requires a team effort consisting of detectives, crime scene technicians, and forensic personnel. Positive outcomes are best realized when these components work together to collect, evaluate, reconstruct, and derive meaning from the available evidence.

    The challenging 5-day (40 hour) Death Investigations course was designed for detectives, crime scene technicians, medico-legal death investigators, and others involved in the investigation of deaths. Through both lecture and practical exercises, investigators may expand their skill sets by learning and practicing methodologies for objective investigation and analysis of death scenes. Key concepts are reinforced through practical exercises. This is not a “checklist” course. Attendees will use critical thinking skills to analyze and investigate “hands on” historically based homicide investigations.

    Classroom instruction and practical exercises include:

    • Procedures for managing crime scenes and addressing constitutional issues
    • Case management techniques to assess, organize, plan, and delegate investigation
    • Methods for identifying and evaluating physical and biological evidence, wounds, bloodstains, ballistics, witnesses, and other evidence
    • Evidence associated with child deaths, self-inflicted death, domestic violence, and accidental deaths
    • Capabilities and limitations of forensic analysis
    • Identifying basic bloodstain pattern characteristics in a crime scene
    • Identifying and evaluating evidentiary relationships to reconstruct events
    • Evaluating subjective and objective evidence through application of critical thinking
    • Flowcharts and timelines as investigative and analytical tools
    • Interview techniques to increase subject cooperation
    • Behavioral characteristics of violent crime offenders
    • Presenting investigations for prosecutorial evaluation
