THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Even the most veteran law enforcers need regular training. "Police officers as well as your crime scene personnel as well as your latent examiners need extensive training and we get training every chance we get," said retired police officer Brenda Husson.
Friday was the annual spring meeting for crime scene investigators hosted by Southwest Georgia Tech in Thomasville. The day began with a skeletal remains class. "We basically adapted archaeology field techniques to the processing of the those surface skeletons and the processing of the burial," said FSU Anthropology Chair Glen Doran.
Dr. Doran says the information taught in his class is constantly put into practice. "We very frequently have students who literally go back home to wherever it is and sometimes within weeks they have a case that involves a surface skeleton or buried body."
Investigators also had the opportunity to try out and purchase new equipment. "This allows them to light any kind of night scene that they may have and this in on low power and can run for nine hours on battery operated power," said Medtech president Melanie Huggins.
The day concluded with a special dive team demonstration by the Thomas County Dive Team. They tested new equipment as well as practiced retrieving a body from dark water. This same team was in action just last week in Irwin County.
