PVCC Program Teaching Kids About CSI

August 1, 2013

Area kids are learning what it would be like to a crime scene investigator.

A group of sixth through ninth graders are at Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC) to participate in CSI Charlottesville.

The program is part of the college's summer career camps for kids. The young students can take classes based on their interest and learn what a career would be like in that field.

This week, they're doing things that a real investigator would have to do at a crime scene.

"We're teaching kids how to collect evidence, do fingerprints, and fibers and hair samples and things like that, how to document what they're finding, and just putting it all together, so it's kind of a real life situation," says Dean of Workforce Services Valerie Palamountain.

PVCC will be offering adult education classes for people interested in law enforcement this fall.

More information on the program can be found at the link below.
