Importance of making a good impression

Lance Gilbert (left) and Zach Ray take tire impression marks
to determine the brand of the tire. Both are Law Enforcement Technology students
who graduated from Chillicothe High School.
Kayla Smith (left), originally from Zephyrhills, Fla., and Tyler Ray
of Chillicothe match shoe prints they have taken with the appropriate bran
of shoe. Smith is a Law Enforcement Technology student,
 while Ray is undeclared in terms of his academic major.
Students in Law Enforcement Technology faculty member Sonja Rawn’s class are learning the importance of making a good first impression.

Students in the LET 145 Criminalistics lab this quarter are making impressions of tires, toolmarks and shoes and thus learning how to use this crime scene evidence to determine more specific information about a crime.

Rawn explained that it is so important for the students to gain hands on experience while they are still in college. Impression evidence if a very important part of a crime scene and can be overlooked without proper training. Other laboratories this quarter included glass, blood spatter, latent prints and DUI.
