There are a number of resources which have been developed to educate young people about the dangers and consequences of gun crime.
CSI: Forensics Project:
Working with local science teachers in the region, Merseyside Police have developed a scheme of work built around key stage 3 sciences, based on a fictitious shooting which took place in Merseyside. Students are asked to work as forensic scientists to try and find the missing bullet and identify the shooter. Through carrying out the various experiments and evaluation, students will learn about the dangers and consequences of getting involved in gun crime.
