DEKALB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Experts at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation are sharing their knowledge with others in their fields. But the crime scene specialists they are helping aren't from their agency -- or even this country. 

Thanks to an exchange program, the GBI trained crime scene specialists from the country of Georgia. They're here for a week, learning techniques and skills to take home to their colleagues. 

The partnership started seven years ago because of a relationship between the State Department and the GBI.

The next time GBI agents go to their country is in December.
