This two-day 16-hour course focuses on rekindling the cold case homicide investigation not only by using modern technology that wasn't available to previous investigators but also introducing forensic genealogy as well. This course will also help investigators to identify potential errors in the investigation that has led to the case going cold. These types of cases are some of the most difficult to solve based on oftentimes decades-old information and evidence, but the end result of solving these types of crimes not only provides closure for the families but also a higher appreciation of your agency from your local communities. The instructor for this program is a seasoned investigator with decades of experience in the field of investigations. This course is definitely one to add to your list of accomplishments. Below is a short list of what to expect when you attend.

Cancellation Policy

The course cancellation policy requires a minimum of a 15-day prior notice from the course start date when a student will not be attending the course. The notification to not attend will be made by email through our website, and if they identify no replacement student, cancellations with less than 15-days notice will cause a department credit that can be used towards another future training event within one year from the original course date. We will charge no-shows without email notification the full course fee, even if the payment has not already been made. We offer a one-year future course credit as well for any no-show that is charged a full course fee. This policy is in effect as of June 23, 2021, and you as a representative of your agency agree to abide by this policy by registering for any course. Please contact us by email or phone if you have questions about this cancellation policy. This policy is in place because of students that register for courses and take training slots without attending training, which removes the opportunity for another officer to attend. We pay the instructors teaching these programs based on the number of officers scheduled to attend the event, and we base our travel cost including instructor pay on registration fees. This policy is considered a binding contract between BSTS LLC and the student or student agency or company.
