This 4-day course addresses ENTOMOLOGY AND ATHROPOLOGY — and the information they may provide to forensic investigations. This class is designed as an introduction,  and is geared towards Crime Scene Responders, Medical Examiners, Coroners, Death Investigators, Detectives, Forensic Nurses, Attorneys, and others seeking greater understanding of the forensic use of BUGS AND BONES. Participating students will receive information on: proper scene documentation (photography and measurements); documentation of climate, weather and environmental conditions; procedural steps in the collection and documentation of BUGS AND BONES; the impact of entomology and anthropology on a forensic investigation; and, case examples presented by the instructors. HANDS-ON ACTIVITIES will occupy about 1/2 of the total class time.
