Crime Scene Sketch and Photos
In this project, you will draw a sketch and also photograph a crime scene that you will create using three pieces of evidence. Taking specific evidence photographs and creating a sketch of a crime scene are fundamental steps in the investigation process. Not only are these photos and sketches important for police when investigating a crime, they are crucial documentation should the case go to court. Understanding and following the necessary steps in this process is a fundamental skill for criminal investigators. This project allows students to simulate a crime scene and practice documenting evidence through photographs and sketches.
