Kids clue into crime scenes at forensics summer camp


Solving crimes at summer camp sounds like a Nancy Drew mystery, but Dauphin County Technical School is where forensics summer camp got a bit messy.

Coroner Graham Hetrick stopped by with lessons on blood-splatter evidence.

This is the second year the Lower Paxton Township Police Department has hosted the camp that teaches kids all about police investigations, from processing evidence to fingerprinting suspects.

“It’s really fun to see them learn and understand this isn’t quite like TV,” police Cpl. Walt Cook said. “It’s fun just to have contact with them, and they get to see us in a good light. We have fun with them.”
