Session was really good, I like to attend more events like this. Thank you so much.
Forensic science and the criminal justice system are two sides of the same coin. You cannot separate them.
Evidence from the crime scene is collected, preserved, analyzed, and examined by the forensic experts to assist the investigation process, catch suspects, and prosecute offenders, bringing justice to the innocent.
Forensic science in the USA is an adversarial system. Experts on both sides in the courtroom indulge in arguments to put forth the best in front of the judiciary. This system has shown great results and makes better use of statistics and probability.
There is a mix of federal and state judicial systems in the US with different criminal laws. The states in the US have different rules and laws across the area. Federal law enforcement in the United States includes the FBI, DEA, DOD, etc. The state law of enforcement in the United States includes police, sheriffs, prosecution, and medical examiners. Several challenges are faced by the experts on a daily basis, be it related to testifying facts or lab maintenance and training.
In this webinar on "Forensic in the United States: Possible Lessons for India", the speaker will highlight how forensic methodologies used by US investigators can benefit Indian investigators as per their laws. Also, you will gain insights into US forensic practices, dos and don'ts of crime scene investigation, the role forensic play in international scenarios, the development of an action plan, and crime scene investigation loopholes.
