Twenty-four law enforcement personnel from thirteen agencies across the United States are taking part in a five-day outdoor recovery course this week at the Anthropology Research Facility. They are recovering human remains and learning how to obtain evidence from decomposed and buried bodies. The training will better prepare them for the range and variation of homicide scenes they will encounter throughout their career.

Several media outlets visited the facility to highlight the course. They include:
