Put ‘em to Work! The Transition from the Classroom to the Field.

Author(s): Dana Kollmann

Year: 2015


Many students eager to begin a career in the forensic sciences have never been on a crime scene and it is even more unlikely that they have ever had the opportunity to process one. This paper details the unusual circumstances that enabled Towson University students to partner with law enforcement and work on both active and cold cases that have necessitated the search for human remains and associated evidence.
