FBI Criminal Investigative Analysis Workshop Hosted In Polk County

The Polk County Sheriff's Office and the Kenneth C. Thompson Institute of Public Safety at Polk Community College joined together recently to host a 3-day Criminal Investigative Analysis Regional Workshop taught by the Federal Bureau Investigation’s National Center for Analysis of Violent Crimes.

There are only 5 or 6 such workshops held nationally each year, and Polk County was fortunate to have the opportunity to make this course available to over 100 officers from Polk and surrounding counties, such as Orange, Osceola, Lee, Hillsborough, and Pinellas, as well as several local agencies.

The workshop was held from February 3-5, 2004, at the PCC/FSU campus in South Lakeland. The training focused on such timely topics like Child Abduction Response Plan; Criminal Investigative Analysis; Computer Aspects of Violent Crime Investigations; Homicide, Serial Murder, Child Abduction, and other Case Presentations.
