Oklahoma State University has an impressive new tool to teach the next generation of investigators.

The school converted the old Tulsa Fire Station #6 into an Investigative Sciences Research and Teaching Laboratory.

It has several simulation rooms for walking through mock investigations.

OSU says it will also be used for important forensic research.

“This is going to be an opportunity for our graduate students to do imperial research to support many of the forensic principles that have been in place and been in our courtrooms for years,” said Ron Thrasher, OSU Associate Professor.

The lab can also be used to help train local law enforcement, K-9s, first responders and to simulate active shooter situations.
