The Secret Service “is stretched to and, in many cases, beyond its limits” and needs to hire 85 agents and 200 uniformed officers to sufficiently perform its mission, according to a report released on Thursday by the Department of Homeland Security.
Springfield, Ohio fourth graders conducted experiments this week just like forensic scientists would use in a lab in an effort to expose children to scientific career fields. Students at Perrin Woods Elementary School are participating in the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Science School.
Knox County’s old forensic center was built for 200 autopsies a year, but performs 800. A new, larger autopsy facility unveiled Tuesday is expected to offer more space for storage and work. “This allows us to get out of the basement of the hospital,” Knox County Medical Examiner Dr. Darinka Mileusnic-Polchan said.
Connie Borror, a professor of statistics in Arizona State University’s New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, has been selected by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to serve on a group whose goal is to strengthen the field of forensic science through the identification and development of standards and guidelines.
Safely storing flammable and combustible liquids in laboratories or stockrooms is risky business. However, by paying attention to the hazard class of the material, the largest container size and the total quantities we can minimize that risk. In addition, here are some general guidelines for safe flammable and combustible storage.
Forensic Scene Investigation and Reconstructionist Solution using fast, precise time-of-flight based laser scanning. The Topcon GLS 2000 Scanner has been introduced into the cutting edge technology of forensic mapping systems available at CSI Mapping. Topcon’s Precise Scan Technology and Dual Camera meet the demands of documenting crime and crash scenes in complex infrastructure.
The kit features a cordless, rechargeable flashlight with eight interchangeable LED heads, each with an internal dome lens that ensures optimum light uniformity. It is perfect for crime-scene investigation, gathering of potential evidence, and it's especially effective for forensic photography.
A high-flying quadcopter that captures aerial images of crime scenes not available to police before is now being utilized by Wilmington, Delaware investigators in the prosecution of homicide cases.
Knox County’s old forensic center was built for 200 autopsies a year, but performs 800. A new, larger autopsy facility unveiled Tuesday is expected to offer more space for storage and work.
Registration is now open to attend a NIST symposium on one of the biggest challenges facing the advancement of forensic science and biometric technology — the development of large research datasets.
Police are hoping that a sketch artist's rendering will help them identify the embalmed head of a woman found in the western Pennsylvania woods last week.
With bath salts being a new product with no exact chemical composition, toxicology companies have struggled to produce a detection technique. As many bath salts are made up of a large drug concoction, with current tests only detecting an individual drug and not a variety of drugs, this also decreases the possibility of detection.
The MacroVIEW DM enables improved standardization and documentation during pathology procedures. Capture and automatically organize images of whole bodies, large organ systems, and small areas of interest. Add visual or audio annotations to images and record video to create a more descriptive record of the case.
Stimulants use such as cocaine and amphetamine is associated with a nearly two-fold greater likelihood of suicidal behavior among people who inject drugs, say researchers. Drug addiction had already been identified as a major risk factor for suicide, and it is in fact the cause of 10 percent of deaths among drug users.
The West Virginia State Police crime lab is complying with stricter standards to maintain its accreditation with an international crime lab accrediting board, officials announced at a press conference.
