Forensics Certificate

About the Certificate

Physical evidence plays an important role in both the investigation and prosecution of criminal cases. Advances in science have revolutionized the way criminal justice agencies investigate incidents, analyze evidence and identify possible suspects. This process begins with the efficient location and collection of physical evidence at the crime scene. This initial step in the investigative process may be carried out by a number of criminal justice professionals.

OCtech’s Forensic Certificate is designed to educate students in the basic scientific and legal principles which affect physical evidence as well as familiarize them with evidence collection techniques currently used by criminal justice agencies.
