The RICP's are a national network of 27 regional institutes across the country and are supported by funds from the U.S. Department of Community Oriented Policing Services. The RICP's provide community policing training and technical assistance to police agencies, community governments, community residents, social agencies and private sector representatives throughout the country.
This crime scene investigation program is intended for law enforcement personnel and is meant to help all officers understand the important role that deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) evidence plays in criminal investigations. It is funded through the U.S. department of Justice and is designed to be delivered as a one day (8 hour) training session.
The overall goal of the program is to give law enforcement and other criminal justice professionals the information they need concerning the collection and usage of DNA evidence so that critical pieces of evidence will be collected, fewer cases will be jeopardized by the mishandling of evidence, and more cases will be solved by the proper use of this technology. This information will enhance their ability to make sound, DNA evidence collection decisions. This program will create a context in which evidence identification, collection, transportation, storage and usage can be applied to scenario-based situations. Participants will have the opportunity to apply newly acquired knowledge by working in crime scene simulation exercises.
