Professional Development

The Arizona Foundation for Legal Services & Education provides ongoing professional development training for School Resource Officers, School Probation Officers and teachers. It is highly recommended that you attend a Forensic Science Academy before implementing a Forensic Science program in your classroom. You will receive lots of materials to get you started, and support along the way from your District Coordinator. The Forensic Science: Crime Scene Investigation training prepares educators to implement Forensic Science curricula in a classroom setting. As a result of this training, participants are provided with the necessary knowledge, skills and resources to teach their students how to conduct a basic criminal investigation, crime scene management, how to manage physical evidence found at a crime scene and how to apply certain disciplines of forensic science in analyzing evidence. The curricula provided during the two-day training meets Arizona State Science and Math Standards and can also be applied to additional academic disciplines.
