Raymond Hsieh (right), director of Cal U’s justice studies program and John Cencich, director of the criminal justice graduate programs.
Hsieh provided computer forensic training for the officers, who serve a city of nearly 2 million people in Taiwan. The three-day course was sponsored by the Pennsylvania Center for Investigative and Forensic Sciences, which Cencich also coordinates.
The officers also will visit the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Officer and will meet Chief Scott Schubert of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police to learn more about crime scene and homicide investigations.
“The center has connections around the world in the areas of international law, crime, and security,” Cencich said. “This allows us to broaden our network of colleagues for academic and professional purposes as well as cultural exchange.”
