GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin State Crime Lab is hosting a week-long training as part of an Evidence Technician School.
The DOJ holds regional trainings several times a year in different communities. The goal is to train officials to identify, collect and process crime scene evidence.
All week, officers have been doing classroom work. But on Thursday, they will process a mock crime scene.
Agencies from our area taking part include the Green Bay, De Pere and Oshkosh police departments.
The training is free to law enforcement officers and each department receives a crime scene kit worth $250 at the end of the class. Five to six courses will be offered this year. The cost to put on each course, paid by the justice department, is about $10,000-$15,000.
