by showing how to collect blood as evidence at a crime scene. Louis
Hale rounded the top three in job skill demonstration with his
presentation of law enforcement defensive tactics.
The Aiken Department of Public Safety helped prepare ATC students for
the competition. Capt. Ray Scott and Sgt. Karl Odenthal provided free
weekly scenario training from January through March, allowing students
to use their criminal labs, police cars, evidence collection kits and
other police equipment.
“We value the support the Aiken Department of Public Safety has
provided for our criminal justice program,” said Dr. Wayne Davis,
criminal justice academic coordinator at ATC. “They are a big part of
our students’ success.”
