Forensic Science students, scene of crime investigators as well as those who need an awareness of how to preserve and protect a crime scene and potential evidence, can all benefit from hands on experience in a controlled indoor environment.
Our 3500 square feet facility is spread over two floors with meeting/ training rooms, toilets, café and seating area, storage areas, offices, a secure outdoor compound as well as our custom built training ‘house’ with multiple themed rooms including a staff room with kitchenette, office, bathroom, workspace, crawl spaces and corridors.
Our facility can therefore be adapted to mimic the conditions typically found at a variety of crime scenes and allow for the creation of complex simulated scenarios that extend across one or multiple areas. The outdoor compound is private and secluded and has a variety of vehicles to facilitate vehicle investigations as well as road traffic signs to allow for static incident scenes to be created.
The facility is equipped with audio and visual recording abilities which can be viewed live in a control room by a trainer or other participants and facilitates visual self-analysis and/or critical examination after a set task has been undertaken. This media can also be provided to take away after the session for further review or evidence of competence.
There is also the option to change the audio and visual environment within the facility by reducing lighting levels, having flashing and/or strobe lighting, a variety of background noises and even smoke and/or pyrotechnics; all to make training as realistic and varied as possible.
To provide an even greater degree of visual and audio analysis of performance, participants can also be supplied with specialist glasses which not only record anything which is said, however, will also record exactly what the participant is looking at and can even have the camera positioned just above the individual’s dominant eye.
All of this media can be not only be recorded for review, however, it can also be wirelessly transmitted to our control room to allow the trainer a real time view of what is being seen and said by the individual/s wearing the glasses.
