Homicide Cold Case Review Committee

The Public Agency Training Council is known throughout the United States (and beyond) as the source for Law Enforcement training and services. As a new service the PATC announces the formation of the "Cold Case Review Committee." The purpose of this committee is to make available to police departments, who do not have Cold Case Squads, a review process for old, unsolved homicides. PATC has over fifty instructors with expertise in many fields in law enforcement. Each of these instructors bring many years of experience in their specific areas.

These fields include: Homicide Investigation and Supervision, Crime Scene Analysis and Blood Spatter Interpretation, Domestic and Child Homicides, Arson Investigation, Burn Pattern Analysis, Forensic Pathology, Legal Issues such as Miranda, Search and Seizure, the storage and handling of evidence from old cases, and bombs and explosive devices, just to name a few.

This service will be offered by the Public Agency Training Council at no charge to the submitting agency.
