An Arresting Human Library

Today we welcomed our second Human Library guest of the year, Officer Chris Tang with the Vancouver Police Department. As soon as he showed up in full uniform, the behavior of both faculty and students improved immediately.

Officer Tang is with the Department’s identification unit, and he spoke to groups of boys about the process of securing a crime scene and collecting evidence. The boys learned about fingerprinting and the science behind identification. Officer Tang even let them try out the fingerprinting wand, a magnetic device to apply dust to items without smudging any prints, unlike a traditional brush. It was a fun and informative visit and we are so grateful that Officer Tang dropped by!
