 For the third consecutive year, the Escondido Police Department is a participant in the San Diego Science and Engineering Festival, an event produced by the BIOCOM Institute in partnership with UC San Diego and Reuben H. Fleet Science Center.  The Festival is geared toward families and K-12 students, but the festival is open to participants of all ages and backgrounds.

Investigators from the Escondido Police Traffic Unit, along with the Crime Lab Forensic Technicians conducted four separate presentations to a total of 125 middle and high school age students from throughout San Diego County.  The presentations were designed to demonstrate how the fields of math, science, physics, and technology are used by investigators to determine the cause of traffic accidents and to solve crimes.  The presentation topics included forensic mapping equipment used to create scene diagrams, computer aided drafting software, mathematic equations to determine speeds of vehicles involved in collisions, fingerprint fundamentals and technology to recover latent finger prints, and DNA technology used by the crime lab.

            The culminating event of the festival is Expo Day which will be held at PETCO Park on Saturday, March 22.  Escondido Police, along with more than 130 organizations will be providing interactive, hands-on activities at the Expo.  The event will run from 10:00AM to 5:00 PM and there is no charge.  Parking is $5.00.  For more information visit the website at http://www.sdsciencefestival.com/expo
