The Science of Forensics
Presented by Steve Lettic (Criminal Justice)
How many crime scene investigation (CSI) variations can you think of…CSI, CSI Miami, CSI Cyber, and CSI New Orleans, the first 48, How to get away with Murder to name just a few? Explore the science behind the different aspects of a forensic investigation and discuss who conducts those investigations as well as what it takes to be a “CSI” in Washington State. We will also discuss the role the state crime lab plays in the system and how the science of Forensics has evolved in to what it is today. Time permitting we will also discuss the “CSI” effect.
