Periodically, NecroSearch International, Inc. offers training sessions for law enforcement and others who assist in the location of clandestine graves and the recovery of remains and related evidence. The primary focus is to assist law enforcement, but other professionals may apply, as well.
“Great overview of how multi-discipline approach is used to narrow down search areas. Good resource for new and current investigative techniques.”
“The instruction and excellent case studies followed by practical applications was a real strength of the course.”
“The diversity of instruction was excellent with the added bonus of being able to communicate directly with the instructors in future investigations.”
Hands on Training
The class is both classroom and hands on. Instructors will demostrate techniques and assist students on using those techniques in the Research Area.
Instructors are highly regarded in their fields. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions to highly experienced and knowledgable professionals that have decades of experience.
Note: Participation in this class does not automatically lead to membership in NecroSearch International, nor will it make the participants experts in the fields presented. Participation in the class is at the sole discretion of NSI.
The class was very well organized and covered many aspects I never would thought would be associated. The presenters are top tier and it is an unbelievable opportunity to be trained by the caliber of staff in NecroSearch.
Necrosearch presenters represent decades of experience in their fields and on forensic cases.
