Fitchburg State University Police Program ROC Monthly Meeting

Posted by Andy Cunningham on December 7, 2022 at 9:03 AM

Students enrolled in the Fitchburg State University Police Program's Recruit Officer Course (ROC) had their last monthly meeting of the semester yesterday afternoon in Weston Auditorium. At this meeting, the Drill Instructor (DI) had a "hats off" conversation with the students. When a DI has a “Hats off” conversation with a group, it’s a signal to the group that it will be an open discussion, it’s a time to teach/mentor/coach and a time for the group to relax just a bit. When the hat goes back on, it’s a signal that the DI is back in the traditional DI role.

Around Campus - Criminal Investigation, Footprint Lab

Posted by Andy Cunningham on November 1, 2022 at 12:48 PM

Today, students in Professor Michael S. McCutcheon's Criminal Investigation course got to try their hands at making a moulage - a mold of a footprint used in criminal investigation. After leaving their own footprints in the ground outside of the McKay Campus School, the students made a mix of dental stone & water and filled their  prints. Once dry, they will clean them off and use to find specific landmarks unique to their print. This course enables students to understand the fundamentals of the criminal investigation process. They explore investigative techniques in crime scene search, collection and use of evidence and information. Learn more about our Criminal Justice Program here.
