CSU hosting 3rd annual criminal justice summer camp
Charleston Southern University will host the third annual CSI@CSU summer camp June 17-21 on campus. The week-long camp is designed for rising high school juniors and seniors.
Students attending CSI@CSU will complete classroom lectures, participate in hands-on crime scene investigation; work in small groups and individually. The program is taught by Charleston Southern University criminal justice professors, members of the Charleston Police CSI team, Berkeley, Dorchester and North Charleston police departments and South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED).
“CSI@CSU is an opportunity for prospective students interested in crime scene investigation as a career to work hand in hand with today’s local crime scene techs,” said CSU professor Alan Fix.
As part of the program, the instructors will stage a mock crime scene with assistance from camp instructors and CSU criminal justice students.
“Students come in thinking TV and leave with a real-world understanding of what crime scene investigation work really is,” added Fix. “I’m going to get them dirty. Crime scenes aren’t always done on sunny days. Students will see and smell a crime scene.”
