Brian>>First of all, this is a hands-on program; they’re learning the fundamentals of what it takes to do this job. They learn how to analyze a crime
scene … they learn how to pick up evidence … process the evidence [instructor pointing out fractures] Surely the instructors are subject matter experts; they’re trained, they’re distinguished, they have extensive backgrounds in this area so students are learning this information, and they are job ready upon graduation. We want them to be successful; we know what I always call ‘where the rubber meets the road’ These students are going to get the hands-on experience in the classroom, where it’s applicable to what the job entails when they get out
there on the street or in that specific role. Kathy>>I’m an evidence tech; I got into it
because of what I went through for that forensics class; and then I was able to take that and apply it with what I’m doing right now. I came to the Technical College to
acquire job as a law enforcement officer I did that; I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing right now and maybe down the road … additional training … I’m thoroughly happy with where my education got me.
