“It’s seldom, if ever, that a workshop of this caliber is offered in Northeast Louisiana, providing officers with quality forensic training by quality forensic professionals. Normally, you would have to travel 100s of miles for this level of instruction,” explains Bob Hammock, Director of Workforce and Economic Development.
“First, we are talking about 40 hours of intense training including many aspects of crime scene investigation, including mock scene investigation, documentation, proper evidence collection, packaging and preservation, physical and chemical processing and the list goes on,” says Hammack.
“Second,” Hammack explains, “the instructor, Claire Shepard, holds incredible credentials. She has authored a number of professional articles and has made numerous presentations. She has served as a laboratory technician with the Connecticut Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and Crime Scene Investigator with DeKalb County Police Department, as well as developing educational programs. She currently, in addition to being a member of the faculty at Louisiana Delta Community College, is a member of the Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team and provided services in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, a member of the American Academy of Forensic Science and the International Association for Identification. Simply put, she is outstanding.”
