DuBose Law Enforcement Program, in collaboration with the Clarendon County Sheriff’s Office and the Manning Police Department, is excited to announce the launch of its CSI Youth Academy, which will be held April 16-18, 2024 from 4 pm-6 pm. This innovative three-day academy is designed for high school students in grades 9-12 interested in crime scene investigation and law enforcement careers. Students attending schools in Clarendon County School District may receive bus transportation from their school site to F.E. DuBose Career Center during the academy; however, a parent/guardian must be present for pickup at the end of the sessions at FEDCC each day.

Engage in Real-World CSI Activities.

Participants will have the unique opportunity to dive into the world of crime scene investigation, engaging in hands-on activities such as:

- Crime Scene Processing

- Vehicle Searches

- Fingerprinting

- Evidence Collection

These activities are designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the skills and knowledge required in law enforcement and crime scene investigation.
