Question description

In recent years, many television shows have been developed to highlight the role of crime scene personnel in a criminal investigation. Some of these shows such as Forensic Files on Court TV and New Detectives: Case Studies in Forensic Science on the Discovery Channel are based on real cases and profile the actual crime scene personnel involved. However, some extremely popular new shows, such as CSI and CSI: Miami, have been developed by Hollywood.

  • Discuss your thoughts on the impact these shows are having on the public's perception of forensic scientists, crime scene personnel, and the abilities of crime laboratories to examine physical evidence.
  • Do they influence the administration of agencies that may not have direct knowledge of the tasks of a crime scene unit in how a crime scene is to be processed, secured, and released?
  • Are there advantages and/or disadvantages in these programs being on the air?

During this class discussion, you can choose to respond to another student who took a different stance and make a rebuttal against their choice, or you can choose a student with whom you agree and explain why.
