|Aquatic Death and Homicidal Drowning Investigations Training Course
|While water related deaths out number fire related deaths by a factor of eight to one and there are a vast number of training courses which focus on fire related death investigations, there is very little law enforcement training that focuses specifically on aquatic death.

Broome County – March 1-2, 2018

While drowning is the eighth leading cause of death among all homicides, its rank would likely be significantly higher if more drowning deaths were investigated as possible foul play. The typical first thought when you hear “drowning” is that it was an accident. This course is designed to identify the “red flags” of a drowning case which would lead an investigator to prove the event is a homicide and not accidental.
• Approaching drowning fatalities and “near drowning” of a child with the same degree of suspicion as any other homicide or possible child abuse incident
• Case history debriefings
• Witness interviewing procedures
• Investigation procedures on the scene
