Trends, Challenges and Strategy in the Forensic Science Sector

Netherlands Forensic Institute

Today’s laboratories are able to investigate more and a greater variety of traces, and to extract more information from less material, than ever before. Forensic IT2 has opened a completely new category of investigation, as specialists explore digital traces on information carriers such as cell phones, laptops, and car computers. Meanwhile, advances in the study of DNA have made it possible to investigate minute traces and even provide information on the physical characteristics of the donor. In addition, all this information can now be produced more quickly than was ever thought possible. Due to these developments, rapid and well-founded reconstructions of events based on trace patterns found at crime scenes are becoming a tantalizing possibility. And these advantages come at a lower cost than many conventional investigative techniques.
