How It’s Made – SIRCHIE Factory Tour

This is an extremely rare opportunity! WPA attendees will tour Sirchie’s production facility and see where and how real CSI equipment and tools are made. Manufacturing areas on the tour include: fingerprint powders, forensic chemicals, laboratory and other electronic tools, sexual assault kit assembly, NARK drug test assembly, and metal machining and formation.

“Drop everything and sign up for MurderCon! Take the Sirchie Tour! See chemicals for blood spatter detection and fingerprint powders for a variety of surfaces and conditions. Watch riot gear being made in front of your eyes, check out tire tread impression pads, and much more. Be prepared to have your mind boggled when you realize what it takes to process a murder scene.” ~ Patti Phillips, author –

“In 2012, I visited Sirchie for a week-long evidence collection class and was also given a behind-the-scenes tour of their state-of-the-art facilities and a glimpse of the countless forensic and law enforcement products they produce—and it blew my mind! I had no idea. What a wonderful treat for mystery and suspense authors!” ! Melanie Atkins, author –
