Washoe County Forensic Science Open House Thursday

Posted: Updated:

From Washoe County:

Washoe County residents are invited to get a unique behind-the-scenes look at the Sheriff's Office Forensic Science Division during a public open house from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 24, 2014.

This open house is a rare opportunity for anyone who enjoys television shows like NCIS or CSI to see how a real life, local Forensic Science Division operates.

Staff will demonstrate how they develop latent prints, test for the presence of blood, get a DNA profile, determine whether or not a white powder is cocaine, and many other types of testing.

Visitors to the open house will also have a chance to put what they learn about Forensic Sciences to work by solving a crime on their own, using a mock crime scene and results of testing found in various sections of the laboratory.
