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.
