Forensic science provides the methodologies for understanding crime scenes. It is used for analyzing evidence, identifying suspects, and prosecuting and convicting criminals while exonerating innocent people. To maintain the integrity of the U.S. criminal justice system, the validity and reliability of forensic science is crucial, and results must be supported by the soundest scientific gathering, analysis, and measurement.
