BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – The Titusville Police Department Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) and Evidence Unit team members have taken the initiative to educate local children about the techniques, procedures, and science of their chosen profession.
CSI manager, Amanda Wright, and CSI technicians, Stephanie McGowan and Caitlyn Moore were approached by several local groups in reference to creating an educational experience for students interested in pursuing a career in their field.
Without hesitation, the team worked over the summer of 2019 with educators at the Titusville’s Police Hall of Fame and Museum in an effort to enhance the Heroes of S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) camp, which focuses on the education youth on different career paths in law enforcement and space exploration.
More recently, the CSI Unit created a classroom experience for local students.
Students have the opportunity to partake in a presentation and a question and answer session with CSI team members.
In addition, students learn specific CSI applications, including a hands-on latent print experiment with balloons and fingerprint ink.
“We have truly embraced this wonderful opportunity to educate our city’s children about the elements of our profession,” said Titusville Police CSI Manager, Amanda Wright.
“There is nothing more rewarding than seeing students eager to learn the science and techniques of Crime Scene Investigation,” added Wright.
