Sheriff’s Office teaches crime scene investigation class to HHI/Bluffton students

in Community by

Recently, Sheriff’s Office investigators were able to impact 36 local area high school students enrolled in this year’s Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce Junior Leadership Program. Throughout the day the students, comprised juniors from six different Southern Beaufort County private and public high schools, were taught about public safety, local government, the legal system, responsibility and civic/social activism by speakers from the public and private sectors.

Sergeant John Adams and Corporal Seth Reynells, both assigned to the Sheriff’s Office Southern Criminal Investigations Section, gave a course of instruction on forensic science and crime scene investigation. The course of instruction was followed by a practical exercise on how to develop and collect latent fingerprints and a question/answer session covering various law enforcement topics.
