New Museum Workshops Help Correct ‘CSI’ Effect By Chris Jessen SHF Wire

“I thought they were very interesting. I’ve always had an interest in forensics and watched all those TV shows,” Baker

Investigating a real crime scene barely resembles its TV counterpart. On TV, crime scene investigators put the evidence in clear plastic bags. In reality, evidence is collected in paper bags to prevent contamination. DNA results don’t come back in minutes, it takes months. “There are so many myths that people are learning on TV and that term has been named the ‘CSI’ effect. The critical element of that is that all citizens are jury members, and so we want to undo those myths,” said Janine Vaccarello, the National Museum of Crime and Punishment’s chief operating

The museum, which celebrated its four-year anniversary in May, started offering workshops a year after it opened, Vaccarello said. She said the museum found the workshops get visitors involved in science.

answer, these things take time.” To correct some of these misconceptions, the Crime Museum in the District offers a variety of forensic workshops. Four new classes are being added to the list: forensic “All these forensic science TV shows are leading people believe that they are experts in forensic science,” Letitiah Etheridge, the forensic science educator and youth director at the museum, said. The new classes last 45 minutes to an hour and teach visitors about the techniques used by professionals in each In the forensic anthropology class, visitors will explore methods of analyzing skeletal remains by examining bones.

Crime Museum forensic science educator Letitiah Etheridge, right, shows Anthony Alfano and Allie Baker one of the skeletal remains for the Crime Museum’s new forensic anthropology workshop at a preview of the museums four new workshops Thursday. The forensic pathology course turns visitors into medical examiners in simulated autopsies. Journalists peered at preserved fetal pigs while Etheridge pointed out how to tell the difference between a stab wound took a quiz on proper crime scene examination. One of the questions was the paper v. plastic choice for bagging evidence. Allie Baker, an intern at Brotman-Winter-Fried, which does public relations for the museum, was at the preview.

That’s where the museum can step in with instructors such as Etheridge, who has a master’s degree in forensic sciences from George Washington University. “It’s amazing. I get to do what I love, and I get to teach it, Vaccarello said the museum’s workshops are unique. “Unless you are a law enforcer, you aren’t going to get this experience anywhere else,” Vaccarello said. The workshops are a separate cost from the admission. Vaccarello suggested that visitors order tickets online ahead of up. The museum also offers a summer camp, for $80 to $435.
