In recognition of the important role that proper forensic science plays in the investigation of crimes throughout the nation, from exonerating the innocent to identifying the guilty, the listed organizations would like to recognize the scientific and technical professionals that serve our communities in this vital role. Therefore, we recognize August 10-16, 2014 as the Second Annual National Forensic Science Week. During this period, we encourage the following activities:
- Recognition of the contribution of forensic scientists
- Community events to encourage a better understanding of forensic science
- Lab tours for local, state and federal policy makers to gain a better insight into current capabilities and future demands.
