Michigan State Police Academy to Standardize Crime-scene ForensicsJun 29, 2012
By Mike Martindale
Michigan State Police have announced plans for a statewide Forensic Evidence Academy, a facility officials hope will help standardize crime scene investigations among police departments and accelerate evidence testing in the agency's backlogged crime laboratories.
The academy's 40-hour course will eventually be offered to law enforcement officers in 600 police agencies across Michigan in 2013, said John Collins, executive director of the state police forensic science division.
