- Nothing is private
-The way that blood really relates to forensics is that, even though fingerprinting is the most useful, every human belongs to one of the four blood types. The government keeps up with the blood so that can help things narrow it down. Blood Spatter Analyst Training and Education -Requires a meticulous and thorough understanding of the properties of blood and the human body.
-Most blood spatter analysts begin with a certificate or degree in criminal justice, particularly forensic science. Specific classes include biology, anatomy, criminology, constitutional law and statistical analysis. These will eventually transition into specific classes dealing with blood that will help an analyst reveal the type of weapon used in a crime, the location and movement of the victim and suspect, and ultimately the reconstruction of a crime. Once hired, analysts attend classes or workshops to continually update their skills and knowledge. School Program -Cape Fear Community College
