Forensic Ballistic Services
Forensic Ballistic Services has always been involved in providing training and workshops on
various levels to legal practitioners including prosecutors and the legal aid board.
Understanding & Interpreting Ballistic Evidence brings forth, with the use of videos, animation
and numerous photos and illustrations, the captivating field of forensic ballistic science and
gives attendees an insight into the world of ballistics and gunshot wounds. Emphasis is given
in how to read and understand ballistic reports, post mortem reports and what is new and current
in this industry on a local and international level.
This course is especially designed for criminal and civil legal practitioners, advocates,
attorneys, paralegals, judges and magistrates and a manual is provided for future reference.
Our new course, Footwear Impressions: Recording & Casting was designed and created for
investigators on a fresh crime scene stressing the importance of preserving and recording
footwear evidence and how to do so.
This course was launched at Mkuze Game Reserve for Ezemvelo Wildlife employees. Staffers, game
rangers and managers were taught to understand and apply standardized procedures when discovering
a fresh poaching scene where footwear evidence could easily be overlooked or destroyed if not
recorded and cast correctly. Attendees actively participate in learning how to photograph and
record the scene and particular evidence found. Attendees also take footwear impression casts
and are evaluated at the end of the course with an exam.
This course is relevant to crime scene investigators or detectives. A manual is provided for
future reference and for note taking.
Forensic Ballistic Services understands the needs and expectations of our attendees and strives
to continually update information to keep it current and fresh while not losing focus on the
core of the science.
