Friday, February 19, 2021
(Start: 12.00pm ET / 9.00am PT)

Agenda Overview:

Forensic science has become an essential tool and aids in solving investigations in ways traditional approaches could not. With the usage of technology, there is an increase in forensic DNA analysis and the investigation of computer crimes using digital forensics. This is only going to surge with the increase in the crimes.

With the technological advances, however, has come greater scrutiny of forensic science. It is important to conduct investigations legally and ethically while maintaining public trust.

PSN’s Forensics Virtual Event provides a unique learning experience that blends traditional and digital forensics for collaboration between government stakeholders. The purpose is to explore fresh ideas, advances in traditional and digital forensic science to increase its reliability and efficiency.
