Wrexham Glyndwr University became the scene of a crime for a day as part of an annual learning simulation event.
Students and lecturers from across the university, as well as applicants, came together to uncover ‘a crime’. This was relating to a fictional high-risk missing person case.
Students on the Policing, Criminology, Law, Forensic Science and Psychology degrees took part in the day, which involved scene setting and various CSI and intelligence briefings, as well as discussions around the main hypotheses. Various simulated body-cam footage of interviews, as well as dash-cam videos, were shown throughout the day, created by students on the university’s Media Production degree.
During the afternoon, the exercise became a ‘murder investigation’. Students from the Forensic Science degree course called in to Tŷ Dysgu – a house on campus that was purchased by the university last year for academic use – to analyse the house for evidence as Policing students searched to determine what had taken place.
The simulation ended with a happy resolution as the missing person was discovered safe and well. Lecturers opted for this to demonstrate that cases do not always end in tragedy.
