University of Arkansas at Little Rock

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock Department of Criminal Justice and the Little Rock Police Department are teaming up to give budding investigators a chance to see what it takes to solve a crime. 

The “CSI: UA Little Rock” event will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18, on the first floor of Ross Hall on the UA Little Rock campus.

The Little Rock Police Department Crime Scene Search Unit will demonstrate hands-on skills used to process crime scenes, including collecting fingerprints, making castings, and analyzing blood spatter patterns. Participants can try out their investigative skills to analyze the crime scene, identify suspects, and solve the mystery of who committed the crime.

Pizza will be available, and all participants will be entered in a drawing to win prizes. The event is open to the public. The cost to attend is $3 per person or $10 per teams of 3-5 people.

The money raised from the event will support scholarships for criminal justice students at UA Little Rock.
