    Terrorism - There are certain fundamental dimensions of action that constitute terrorism, learn how the media plays a role in portraying a "terrorist". 
    Criminal Behavior - Are offenses planned or spur of the moment? What causes someone to become a 'career criminal'? You'll assess evidence and understand the mind of a criminal.
    Serology/Blood Detection - You'll conduct a Luminol and Kastle-Meyer test to identify the presence of blood on pieces of evidence and what to do if the test returns positive. (This session involves simulated blood and safe alternative chemicals for demonstration purposes).
