Pittsburgh, June 28 –- The popularity of the television program “CSI” has demonstrated the important role that science can play in solving crimes. This week, Pittsburgh high school juniors and seniors will be searching for clues and processing evidence at “CSI: La Roche,” a four-day session that is the product of a partnership between La Roche College and the City of Pittsburgh Schools.

“We plan on creating a real-world scenario for these young people,” said Lawrence Likar, J.D., assistant professor of criminal justice and former FBI agent. “They’ll be called upon to use deductive reasoning, to reconstruct a crime and to draw conclusions using scientific analysis and applications. At the end of the session, we hope they have a better sense of what a career in forensic science might be like.”

“CSI: La Roche” will utilize the newly constructed Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) Lab on campus. Once a maintenance shed, this innovative laboratory/classroom utilizes fingerprinting techniques, mock crime scenes and other practical exercises for students studying criminal justice. Once students have gathered the evidence, they will conduct scientific experiments in La Roche’s state-of-the-art science labs.

The camp begins on Wednesday, June 30 and ends on Saturday, July 3 with an awards ceremony and presentation. <
