Blood Pattern Analysis Awareness for Scenes (BPA2a)
1 Day | Certificate of Attendance
This basic one-day introduction to blood pattern analysis is aimed at Crime Scene Investigators and provides them with a broad idea of what to expect at a scene involving the presence of blood. Attendees will gain a basic understanding of how blood can be deposited and the types of stain and pattern which can be obtained.
The course will be delivered by our own highly experienced blood pattern analysis scientists, who are members of the IABPA and will be able to provide practical knowledge, experience, and case examples to give context and meaning to the material being taught.
The course will also have an all-important practical element, which will bring to life some of the key elements described in the lectures and give participants greater depth of knowledge as to the behaviours and visualisation of blood.
The course will provide a basic introduction to the following:
Detection of blood
Background to the principles of blood pattern analysis, its development over time and its practical uses and limitations
Basic principles and theories of blood pattern analysis, what are we looking for and when it could be significant
Different types of blood stains and how they are deposited
Different types of blood pattern and how they can be created
Physically altered blood and how this affects its distribution and appearance
The difference between theory and reality – what and how to consider blood at the scene
Blood enhancement techniques and when these might be applied to assist with blood searching and blood pattern analysis
