Youths figure out ‘whodunit’ at police camp

New England Tech’s Criminal Justice program has won the Gold medal at the National SkillsUSA competition for two consecutive years. And yes, we are pretty proud of that accomplishment. But now New England Tech is helping the Warwick Youth Leadership camp and the Warwick Police Department and Youth Advisory Prevention Task Force work with young crime solvers.

From the Warwick Beacon:

WHODUNIT? In a mock crime scene at the NETECH forensic labs, Hannah French, Daphne Eckert, Mackenzie Manning and Olivia Gilbert record every detail with rulers, cameras and a notepad. Each girl had her own roles from photographer to note taker.

The next generation of crime solvers spent Wednesday at the New England Institute of Technology’s (NEIT) forensic lab.

The Warwick Youth Leadership Camp, run by the Warwick Police Department and Youth Advisory & Prevention Task Force, took campers from 11 to 14 years old to the labs to experience mock crime scenes and test the campers’ detective skills.

After a preliminary meeting to teach the children the basics of investigation, they were broken into groups to explore the crime scenes. Although no crime was committed, the campers took pictures of the rooms, getting every last detail. They fingerprinted corners and windows.

Detective Barbara Frazier, who instructed the children, said, “We want the kids to have a better understanding of what we do, a look behind the scenes. We also provide them with a better idea of how to react, say if a friend’s bike got stolen. It is easier calling the police if you have an idea of who they are.”

Mackenzie Manning, a camper and note taker for the crime scene, said, “We learn what the police do and then try it for ourselves. It’s a lot of fun.”

School Resource Officers (SRO) of Warwick run the four-day camp, which has had two more sessions this summer. They work at the junior%
