Program: Scat & Tracks: What Animals Leave Behind @ Community Room at the Arlington Police Department's West District Service Center
Sep 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Kayleigh Medeiros will be discussing animal evidence, specifically scat and tracks. Participants will learn how to safely examine scat and how to identify it. We will then discuss the tracks of an animal; participants will discover where to look for tracks, the parts of a track, and how to measure.
