Past Forensic Trainings

Some of our most popular recent trainings are:

Basic Cell Phone Investigation
Introductory course that teaches law enforcement personnel how to request, read, and analyze Call Detail Records provided by cellular providers, understand and plot cellular site locations to determine the location of a suspect during a given time frame, and instruct first responders on how to seize and preserve evidence on a cell phone. Instruction is also provided on summarizing this information for case reports and/or courtroom presentations.

Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE)
ARIDE training is a FREE course for Texas Peace Officers. The course is designed to bridge the gap between the SFST and DRE courses by providing officers with general information regarding how to observe, identify and articulate the signs of impairments related to drugs, alcohol or a combination of the two.

Child Death Investigations
This comprehensive course covers all aspects of child death investigations including manners and mechanisms of death, scene investigation, interdisciplinary collaboration, court issues, and reconstructions. This is a valuable course for professionals who deal with child deaths both directly and indirectly such as medical professionals, social workers, medical examiners/coroners, prosecutors and especially law enforcement.
