How is tracking used in a Forensic Environment? What are some ways that the skills of the tracker can be used to help a Forensic Investigation? In a world of DNA recovery and digital photography, most investigators tend towards using a fairly scientifically “heavy-handed” approach to crime scene analysis. This introductory level course will cover how the ancient and primitive skills of the tracker are still as relevant today in criminal investigation as they ever have been.
In this class, students will cover the Role of the Tracker in Criminal Investigations and Man-Tracking. In it, we will bring to light how a solid understanding of track awareness and tracking concepts can significantly aid in these endeavors by showing a very grounded, common sense approach to them.
For many, the tracker is viewed as having almost mythical status in these areas and can do no wrong. For others, the tracker is seen as a “backwoods bumpkin” who uses something akin to “black magic” in order solve mysteries. In reality, the tracker is neither of these extremes. This class will show how the Tracker fits into the world of Criminal Investigation through confidence, professionalism, and a willingness to work as a member of a team in order to achieve a desired outcome.
This class is designed for Law Enforcement Officials, Criminal Investigators, and any other Uniformed Personnel who may deal with these circumstances in their jobs. However, the class is open to any who are interested in Forensic Tracking, and certainly to all skill levels. This is an introductory class intended to open the eyes of the students to how tracking can aid Criminal Investigations. Come and see for yourself how you could potentially aid society in this way!
