2023 KBI Laboratory - Blood Stain Pattern, Digital Evidence, Firearms, Latent Prints, and TraceWhile many agencies have programs in crime scene processing, the level of training and resources available varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, as does the opportunity to work with evidence. To help these agencies, Kansas Bureau of Investigation has developed a comprehensive Lab Services Training and Outreach Program.
Bloodstain Pattern AnalysisCrimes that result in blood loss can provide valuable information to the investigator regarding positioning and movement of individuals, and actions that took place during the commission of the crime. In this course, students will learn how to correctly and adequately document the crime scene, individuals, and evidence for submission for bloodstain pattern analysis.
Case Management and Affidavit PreparationThis course will cover the various aspects of case management including case prioritization, follow up investigations, documentation, time management, developing contacts and working with prosecutors.
Domestic Violence, Protection Orders and Risk of LethalityA class designed to define domestic violence, protection order, tools and strategies for assessing danger or risk of lethality. Responding to and investigating domestic violence, stalking orders, and lethality will be discussed along with the limitations of protection orders.
