Investigation confirms popularity of forensic science

March 07, 2018 / by / 0 Comment

Solving a crime doesn’t happen in the span of a one-hour “Bones” TV show. Nor do one or two investigators break a case wide open. Usually, it takes a whole team of investigators, from police crime scene investigators to forensic technicians, as the 1,500 high school students who attended the College of Science, Engineering and Technology’s Forensic Science Day found out on Tuesday. They heard speakers talk about forensic dentistry, got to create some blood spatter and watched the Phoenix Police Department’s K-9 Unit in action.
