Shooting Scenes - Staged or Not Staged - Find the Red Flag Indicators
 Instructor:        Jan Johnson, Trainer and Consultant Forensic Pieces, Inc.
 Course Cost:  $45
 Time:  1:00 PM – 5:00 PM
 Location:  Magnolia room
 Most law enforcement agencies have encountered a potentially staged shooting crime scene, some with a sinister motive behind their appearances and others of a more benign incidental nature.  The average investigator, detective or crime scene technician or analyst probably knows little about empirical data or theories regarding staged crime scenes and is simply trying to efficiently process a scene during a shooting death investigation. 
 This workshop will equip the attendee to recognize the characteristic “red flags” that are so often present but frequently overlooked within the crime scenes, which would allow the investigator to tell the difference between the incidentals versus sinister staging events.  A systematic approach to evaluating the scenes will be presented which, if applied, should enable the attendee to identify the staged scenes and to properly discern whether the staging is benign or sinister in origin.  Come and solve a few cases as we learn to “find the red flags”.     

Bloodstain Patterns: Size, Shape, and Surface Considerations with an Empasis on Shooting Investigations
Instructor:        Jan Johnson, Trainer and Consultant Forensic Pieces, Inc. 
Course Cost:  $75
Time:  8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Location:  Oak Alley room
Bloodstain pattern recognition and identification are important pieces of the puzzle when attempting to reconstruct events that occur in violent crime scenes, and especially in shooting incidents.  This 8 hour workshop will provide hands-on experience with scientific experiments that demonstrate the final appearance of blood on various targets.  These experiments were designed to demonstrate the effects on bloodstains that are deposited on various surfaces, at various heights, and various angles.  The participants will become familiar with the appearances of forward spatter, side spatter, and back spatter as they relate to shooting incidents.  A review of the recommended Bloodstain Pattern Terminology in addition to abundant case studies will also be presented in this workshop. 
This workshop is geared towards the crime scene technicians, investigators, detectives, medical examiners and/or medical examiner investigators, as well as laboratory analyst to include firearms examiners and other forensic professionals associated with crime scene investigation. 
Safety Note:  Aprons, gloves, safety glasses, and masks will be provided for students enrolled in this workshop.  Non-human blood will be utilized for the experiments. 
 Please bring your camera if you wish to document these experiments.
