Every time a crime is committed, police secure the scene, collect evidence, and interview witnesses and because every crime is different, they must be ready for the unexpected. That's why investigation training is required, and this week one is being held here in mid-Michigan.
Detective Sgt. Kurt Schram of the Michigan State Police says most of the people attending the homicide investigation training at Michigan State University are young detectives from different agencies across the state.
A mock scene was set up Tuesday at an apartment complex on campus and on Wednesday, investigators looked through it. Criminal Justice students from MSU helped out acting as suspects and witnesses.
