25th Annual John R. Teggatz Forensic Science Seminar
A death in mass disaster/mass fatalities teachings exist in the current death investigation community. Additionally, identification of mass disaster/fatalities victims is lacking in this same community. Due to the unique and isolated nature of these events, death investigators need additional didactic teaching from experienced frontline responders to better handle an emergency in its own jurisdiction. This course will enhance the knowledge, competence, and performance of each death investigator through the sharing of experiences from other death investigators involved in similar situations.
This year’s seminar focuses on mass fatalities and the challenges inherent in this type of investigation, including the identification of victims. Special focus will be an in-depth presentation on the 2012 Sikh Temple fatalities from a law enforcement perspective, as well as the resulting death investigation. Please join us for an informative program that promises to enhance the scientific field of death investigation.
