Troy University's Forensic Science Summer Program at the Dothan Campus will kick-off on Monday, June 9, with a welcome event at 9 a.m. inside Sony Hall featuring remarks from local law enforcement officials.

Dothan Mayor Mike Schmitz, Houston County Sheriff Andy Hughes and other officials will greet the 24 area high school students taking part in the weeklong program that will give students hands-on training in crime scene investigation.

Members of the media are invited to cover the welcome event, as well as parts of the program throughout the week. The Sony Hall auditorium is located inside Everett Hall.

The third annual Forensic Science Summer Program will run June 9-13 at the Dothan Campus.

Presented by the TROY College of Arts and Sciences in conjunction with the Dothan Police Department and the Houston County Sheriff’s Department, the program teaches students about the different sciences that make up crime scene investigation. This year, the camp will focus on the science of forensic entomology and toxicology. Participants will learn how insects provide important clues in a death investigation.
