Look And Record - Scene of crime procedures

Students using the correct procedures investigated a mock-crime set up in the HS library. The mock-crime scene is then scrutinized carefully, close attention being paid to the means of access to the area, the identification and positioning of all the objects present, conditions such as lighting, and weather (if outside). These observations are all recorded on a sketch. This sketch is used to make a scale drawing that identifies all the items found and shows exactly where they were found. Students can then use such a drawing to assist in processing the evidence collected and in reconstructing the mock-crime scene. In this experiment, students will "secure" a crime scene and, taking precautions against contamination of evidence, make a sketch of the items found there.
