GWINNETT, Ga. — Earlier in February, law enforcement officers trained at the Gwinnett County Police Department to strengthen their crime investigation skills through a shooting reconstruction course.

The course was part of the kickoff for the Forensic Training Source, a new non-profit organization based in Cumming that is dedicated to law enforcement training nationwide. The week-long class covered a number of scenarios including gunshot residue, identifying bullet marks, motor vehicles as a target surface and report writing.
