In 2013, the Administration of Justice program acquired a laboratory that had previously been used by the Biology department.  The AJ program transformed the space into a teaching Crime Lab.  The laboratory consists of a main room with six workstations where students learn how to dust for fingerprints and analyze pieces of evidence.  The adjacent room is used for creating mock crime scenes where students engage in simulation exercises including processing a murder scene using the latest methods in forensic science including identifying shoe print impressions, gunshot residue tests, blood spatter and bullet trajectory re-construction.
