Many chapters of the ACJA have Crime Scene Investigation Teams. There are some variations
but the basic idea is that teams of students compete against each other to investigate
mock crime scenes. There is an educational component as teams are trained in various
topics of forensics and investigations through courses available in the department
but also through special lectures and demonstrations.
At this point, I’m trying to determine if there is any interest in developing this
idea at the University of Memphis. Another major determination will be whether or
not there are people willing to take a lead on organizing students, guests, and events.
