The crime laboratory
Original responses to the forum questions each week need to be substantial (350 words per question) and significantly supported by at least 2 peer reviewed, scholarly sources. The citation and references are required to be in APA 6th edition format. Sources used for studies or statistical information should be less than 10 years old. Direct quoting should be limited. Interpretation in your own words is expected.
[You may need to seek out additional peer-reviewed articles to address the following questions.]
1) Visit the FBI website at www.fbi.gov and search for the crime laboratory. What services are provided to law enforcement by the lab?
2) Pick one of the FBI services provided and create a request for analysis of specific evidence collected at a fictional crime scene. What testing would you request the FBI lab to do for your case?
3) Review the 2-part “body farm” video on the same FBI lab website and discuss what you found to be interesting.
