9/11 - will forensic science ever be the same?

Being prepared for the 21st century

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

Some ten years ago I stood in a similar position to this at the Hobart meeting of the ANZFSS. The theme of that meeting, 'Bridging the Gap', referred to the 'gap' which sometimes exists between forensic work done in the field and forensic work done in the laboratory. My vision for the past ten years or so with the Forensic Services group of the Australian Federal Police (AFP) has been not merely to eliminate this 'gap' but also to show the irrelevance of the concept by developing a truly holistic provision of forensic service.
