This two-day course is approved for 16 hours of continuing education by Missouri POST, the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigators, ABMDI, and the International Association for Identification IAI.
This course is designed to teach the basics of bloodstain pattern analysis. The course will introduce the principles of bloodstain and pattern formation, bloodstain pattern analysis terminology, and bloodstain documentation. The majority of this course will focus on bloodstain and pattern identification. This knowledge will be reinforced with live classroom demonstrations and case study reviews. This course has been designed for crime scene and forensic investigators, including but not limited to death investigators, law enforcement, and forensic and crime scene technicians. This course does not satisfy the requirements to become a certified bloodstain pattern analyst. Information on how to become a certified analyst will be provided at the end of the course.
Blood found on crime victims, suspects, or witnesses can be considered significant and should be treated as important evidence when investigating crime scenes. Bloodstain pattern analysis may provide investigative leads as well as supportive or non-supportive evidence for statements from victims, suspects, and witnesses.
This course gives investigators and crime scene personnel a basic foundation in identifying and documenting bloodstain pattern evidence at crime scenes. It provides the basic tools needed to establish parameters in bloodstain pattern identification and crime scene reconstruction and serves as a foundation for additional observations and experiments involving bloodstains. Participants will learn how to document evidence so that others will be able to reconstruct what occurred. The course includes case presentations and practical exercises.
