The Crime Scene Investigation/Forensics Camp hosted by the Suffolk Commonwealth’s Attorney returns June 20-23 for youth ages 12-15.

The free camp, organized by Commonwealth’s Attorney Narendra R. Pleas, is designed to educate students on the study of forensics through criminal law.

“It is a four-day program designed to teach Suffolk students about observation, photography, evidence collection, preservation and courtroom testimony,” according to a news release. “Forensic experts and Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorneys will educate the students on the kind of forensic evidence they look for when prosecuting cases.”

Students attending any school in Suffolk between the ages of 12-15 are eligible to participate. However, space in the camp is limited to only 40 students. The Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office said the limit allows them to ensure a safe hands-on experience for all participants and faculty.

Parents or guardians must apply by June 3 for interested students to be considered for admission.

Forms for the camp are available for download online at Pleas’ office’s website,
