From the nightly news to prime time television, images of crime scene investigations and forensics can be found throughout our culture. We visit members of the Department of Natural Resources Critical Incident Reconstruction Team and take a look at how techniques like crime scene reconstruction, fingerprinting, and DNA analysis are applied to environmental work. And we'll see how polluters are tracked down. Plus we offer a few tips on how you can be safer in the outdoors and avoid being the subject of such investigations!
