Augusta University’s Department of Social Sciences and Columbia County Sheriff’s Office are creating an outdoor crime scene from 1 to 2:15 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19, in the quadrangle on the Summerville Campus.
Criminal justice instructor Kenneth Shugars and his criminal investigation students will be turning the space into a crime scene to learn how to examine a scene as well as set-up and breakdown procedures.
Crime scene investigator Tim Burnley of the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office will bring a CSI truck with equipment, including a 3D mapping laser.
Shugars says in the next several weeks, his students will be doing mock crime scene projects and photographing them on campus. They will be using props to simulate a crime scene.
