    Hello and welcome to Forensic Science and Introduction to Law and Public Safety. I am Mr. Joe Peny and I will be your instructor for the 2021-2022 academic year.  

    The forensic science course introduces key topics in forensic science, including the application of the scientific process to forensic analysis, procedures and principles of crime scene investigation, physical and trace evidence, and the law and courtroom procedures from the perspective of the forensic scientist. Through classroom instruction, labs, and analysis of fictional and nonfictional crime scenarios, students learn about forensic tools, technical resources, forming and testing hypotheses, proper data collection, and responsible conclusions.
    Each chapter's presentation will be located in Google Classroom as well as assignments, readings, and other key pieces of information needed for your success in the class. Practice tests will be available on the Quia.com for your studying needs. Success in Forensic Science and Introduction to Law and Public Safety will be measured through turning in assignments (on time). completing projects that are assigned, and preparing for exams. 
    I hope each of my Forensic students will leave the class with a better understanding and an interest in the worlds of science, especially forensics. It is my hope that each of my Intro to Law and Public Safety will use the knowledge learned in this class and continue in the Public Safety Career Pathway.
