Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $935,514)

The purpose of these funds will be used to develop new training programs, leverage existing training curricula, and explore new and innovative solutions to meet the training needs of Crime Scene examiners, which will reduce the impact that current training programs have on the resources of agency operations. The NFSTC and its Partner will design training resources that will accommodate multiple delivery methods from traditional face-to-face delivery to a variety of multimedia capabilities. This program will provide over 12,000 hours of training in the areas of the Crime Scene forensic discipline. Properly trained crime scene technicians through this training will lessen the backlog/burden of evidence in the crime laboratory by teaching the attendees to collect and submit fewer, but more probative, items of evidence moving the case through more quickly.
