JSU’s Center for Applied Forensics Receives Grant
Governor Robert Bentley awards a $34,000 grant to help provide professional development training sessions for crime scene investigators in northeast Alabama.
Grant funds will be used to conduct four training sessions at Jacksonville State University’s Center for Applied Forensics. These sessions will train and equip 100 individuals actively engaged in the documentation and collection of crime scene evidence. JSU and local law enforcement agencies in northeast Alabama together established the Center for Applied Forensics in 2012 to provide crime scene assistance, continuing education opportunities regarding crime scene processing and the evaluation of new technologies applicable to forensics at the local level.
