St. Maarten – A group of twenty-two participants followed a course last week about investigation sex crimes. The Dutch Forensic Institute NFI in collaboration with Dutch forensic experts gave the training. Among the participants were detectives, prosecutors, doctors (one of them being United People’s party MP Ruth Douglass), community police officers and investigators from Aruba. On Friday all participants received a certificate for completing the course.

Chief Commissioner Peter de Witte opened the course last week Monday. Instructors Peter Huisman, Doris Eerhart, Bernice Grotebevelborg and Martin Oosting took their class through topics like investigating and photographing injuries, using forensic light sources and DNA-investigations. The course was designed for technical and tactical investigators, public prosecutors, and medical doctors. These groups all form part of the forensic framework for properly collecting forensic evidence and for treatment of, and care for the victim.
