This course strives to depict the role of the forensic scientist in the criminal justice system. This course is designed for the non-scientific student. The course is a classroom introduction to the world of forensic science that includes Internet application, ability and limitations of the modern crime laboratory. Forensic science begins at the crime scene. If an investigator cannot recognize, collect and package evidence properly, no amount of equipment or expertise in the laboratory will salvage the situation.
