Editorial Reviews

Ever want to solve a murder? Then enroll in Crime Scene University where Penn State University students learn how to unmask a killer in the classroom and in the field through violent crime scenarios that would challenge the most experienced investigators. From studying blood spatter patterns to using electrostatic printing to locate footprints, students work in two teams to recreate the most brutal and intriguing crimes you can imagine.

Master of the House: Teams enter a home with a history of domestic abuse, finding the husband dead on the floor. Students must piece this crime together using techniques taught by their teacher, Dr. Shaler, but clashing personalities could interfere with the investigation.

Drugs and Dirty Deals: Students are faced with their first double-victim crime scene. They use oblique lighting and electrostatic printing to locate footprints, perform drug tests on suspicious substances and examine blood spatter.

Road Rage: It's a race against time as students attempt to solve their first outdoor crime scene. Professor Shaler has set up a car accident scene involving two damaged vehicles that have bullet holes.

Dismemberment: Dr. Shaler has set up two completely different locations, requiring the teams to work together. The grey team processes an outdoor scene where they locate a severed head and hands in plastic bags while the blue team processes the house where the dismembering took place.

Murder / Suicide: Students employ their recent lesson on gunshot residue to identify who may have fired a weapon in a double-victims scenario. Only one team manages to keep it together, while the other destroys one of the most crucial pieces of evidence. Serial Killer Dumpsite: The students are given two areas of the woods to inspect. Upon arrival, students locate bloody knives and decomposing pigs, substituting for human bodies. After the forensic work is done, the true challenge is piecing together what they have learned.

5.0 out of 5 stars great choice August 20, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this DVD to use in my Forensic Science classroom. I found the DVD to be very informative and educational,along with being fun to watch. The scenes are not gruelsome or vulgar. It's very interesting to watch the teams as they try to solve the six crimes and how their mistakes play into their final outcome. I would highly recommend this as an addition to any Forensic classroom.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crime Scene DVD September 16, 2012
By Dave
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this out of curiosity and am not disappointed.
Its about investigating a crime scene where the students are given the task to do a forensic fact finding. As a viewer, you'll be drawn into making your own investigation & comparing your result against theirs.
Its like reading a detective novel & trying to figure out who did it. Along the way , I learnt quite a bit about forensic science which may come in handy( God forbid)should I decide to engage in a brutal assult on my enemy Example: wash all weapons with bleach & the forensic scientist will not be able to find trace of blood.

I would have given a 5 star if only this DVD contains more episodes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of Crime Scene DVF January 27, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am always very interested in the "what, how, and when" and this DVD on examination of (mock) crime scene investigation is thorough and mind-provoking. If you are interested in gong into this field or if you are just interested in what it's all about, give this DVD a chance. I was glad I bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful little Series February 16, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought Crime Scene University to shop to my Forensics students. It's great! They show how 2 teams of students work to solve crimes using information they just learned plus you get to see the interpersonal dynamics between the group members (I love this because kids can see what good leadership and poor leadership results in).

I just wish they would come out with a second DVD set. I would totally buy this again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent DVD April 8, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a high school teacher in Crime Scene Investigations and Forensics, I found this dvd to be an excellent addition to my video catalog! This dvd follows two different teams as they process crime scenes and try to determine how the crime was committed as well as who committed the crime. Kept the class totally engaged. Excellent training tool!
