CSFS 2018 – Forensic Intelligence

May 1 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Four Points Sheraton, 35 Laurier Street
Gatineau, Quebec J8X 4E9 Canada
+ Google Map
$80

Brief Abstract: In their daily activities, forensic scientists recurrently detect, collect, analyse and interpret the relics of criminal activities. Through traces, they reconstruct and explain what occurred in the past and detect patterns of repetitive crime activities. It is argued that, in addition to its traditional investigative and court functions, forensic science can help decipher crime mechanisms that can subsequently inform on disorders, deviant behaviors or more broadly on crime. This workshop aims to engage the participants with the opportunities…

Bloodstain Pattern Analysis on Fabrics with an Introduction to Digital Casework

August 20 - August 24
CSI Academy of Florida Alachua, FL United States + Google Map

Workshop Workshop participants will participate in practical exercises to enhance their ability to interpret complex bloodstain patterns deposited on fabrics, textiles and clothing. This will be accomplished by the participant’s dripping, splashing and transferring liquid blood onto fabrics, textiles, and clothing and observing the macroscopic and microscopic interaction of the blood with the substrate. Workshop participants will also learn to evaluate bloodstain evidence from digital files by working on cases provided in a digital format. In addition, the participants will…

Introductory Bloodstain Pattern Analysis Workshop

December 3 - December 7
Miami-Dade Public Safety Training Institute, 9601 NW 58th
Doral, FL 33178 United States
+ Google Map

Violent crimes usually result in bloodshed. When physical forces act upon liquid blood, patterns will be deposited on the various items at the crime scene, as well as the clothing of the individuals present during the activity. These patterns can yield valuable information concerning the events that lead to their creation. The information can then be used for reconstruction of the incident, as well as to evaluate the statements of the witnesses and the crime participants. Bloodstain pattern evidence can…
