GALLOWAY– The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey will again offer its popular Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) summer camp to high school students who want to gain hands-on experience in criminal investigation and trial preparation.
The camp will be hosted on the Stockton College campus and is open to the public, but space is limited. There are four sessions: June 24-28, July 8-12, July 22-26 and Aug. 5-9.
With the help of people who work in criminal justice, law enforcement, and forensic psychology, campers will work as part of an elite team of investigators and professionals to help solve a murder. They will gain experience with evidence-gathering and evidence-testing techniques, such as DNA analysis, impressions, forensic odontology (bite mark evidence), ink analysis, fingerprints, chemical analysis, hair and fibers, blood typing, and spatter analysis.
Campers will also learn how to question suspects and witnesses. They will use the techniques that investigators utilize to learn the facts in a case, know when people are telling the truth or lying, and figure out when people’s memories may be distorted. For trial preparation, campers will learn jury selection techniques, strategies for presenting their cases, and making arguments in a courtroom. They will also learn what life is like in jail for those individuals who are awaiting trial and life in prison for those people who are convicted.
The cost per student includes meals, room and board, classes led by experts, field trips, and hands-on investigative and trial experience. Space is limited. For more information call 1-609-652-4559 or visit http://loki.stockton.edu/stockcsi/index.html
