On the trail of the justice system: Criminology Museum
In this three-part series, Science Trails follows different stages of the Swiss justice system: custody in a prison (May 14), trial (May 21) and police investigative work (August 20).
How do the police go about their investigative work and how has police work changed over the years? What developments have the judiciary and the Zurich Cantonal Police undergone? Founded in 1901 and open to the public since 1958, Switzerland's first crime museum provides answers to these and many other questions.
After a multivision show on the history of the judiciary and the development of the Zurich Cantonal Police, participants will learn about today's police work through a film. The subsequent tour of the crime museum, guided by active or former police officers, finally conveys a diverse picture of authentic criminal cases and police investigative work through numerous exhibits and photos.
