Technology & Forensics

Forensics/Evidence

There is a broad array of forensic science disciplines. Laboratory-based forensic science includes DNA, toxicology, and drug analyses; whereas other disciplines are based on expert analysis and interpretation such as fingerprints, writing samples, and ballistics. During an investigation, forensic evidence may be collected at a crime scene, analyzed in a laboratory, and presented in court as evidence.
