Lake Land College Offering New Crime Scene Technician Program

If you want to be a crime scene investigator, Lake Land College is unveiling a new program for you. 


Lake Land College announces a new Crime Scene Technician program starting Fall 2022. 


The program will be offered as a one-year certificate stackable with other Criminal Justice programs.


Lake Land says crime scene technicians are in high demand with a 14% national growth rate. Lake Land will be one of the few institutions in the nation to offer this program. 


It will provide hands-on training for blood splatter analysis, bullet trajectory analysis, crime scene investigation, crime scene photography, evidence gathering and evidence processing. 


The program meets the standards of the International Association of Investigations. Students will be ready to take the IAI exam after serving one year in the field as a police officer. 


Active and retired crime scene technicians are curating and instructing this program. 


Those interested should apply by August 19 to enroll for fall semester. For more information, contact the Criminal Justice Program Coordinator David Chambers at dchambers@lakelandcollege.edu or 217-234-5310.
