Albany- Have you ever thought about being a crime scene investigator or maybe even a forensics scientist? Well students participating in this year's Darton College summer camp are learning first hand just how hard it can be.

Albany police are on hand to offer student's a lesson in how to figure out the who, what and where of a crime investigation. Each day students learn something different and assigned a difficult task with hands-on experience a must.

One of the lectures in the class Officer Julie Kicklighter says, "This isn't about whose right or wrong, but about how they collect evidence to get to their conclusion." The class will continue throughout the week and end on Friday.

Anyone interested in attending a similar class for next year should contact Darton College.
