NFSTC Board honored by the Tampa Bay Business Journal

John Ives, Mike McCampbell and Board President Mitch Morrissey attended the TBBJ awards event on November 19, 2015.

The NFSTC Board of Directors has been honored in the inaugural class of Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Outstanding Directors. Our nine member board took the honors for a nonprofit, medium size, in the entire Tampa Bay region.

TBBJ-Board-2015Under their guidance, NFSTC was able to navigate through a major funding shift which dramatically impacted our business model. In 2011, NFSTC was the recipient of more than $10 million dollars in National Institute of Justice (NIJ) grant funding; by 2012 that total plummeted to nearly $4.5 million. By 2014, NIJ funding of training projects by NFSTC and other organizations had completely stopped.

NFSTC board members took an active role in expanding the customer base and securing new lines of business. We not only survived, we thrived through a major business transition and were able to celebrate success and our 20th anniversary this year.

We want to say thank you and congratulations to our board members! Read more about our board here.

Support the 2015 NFSTC ROTC Internship

Shooting a fingerprint on a phoneEach year since 2009, NFSTC has offered a rigorous, two-week, one-of-a-kind Biometrics and Forensic Internship for 12 ROTC Cadets from around the country. NFSTC has been committed to this program as it truly complements our work and because of this, NFSTC has provided this amazing opportunity at no charge to ROTC cadets or the Command. Since we started, more than 70 Cadets have been to NFSTC and learned skills, tools and techniques that will make them stronger leaders in our nation’s security forces.

This year we have launched a campaign to allow companies and individuals to support this program through sponsorship and donations. Your support will show your commitment to educating future Army leaders through a unique internship experience they do not receive in college and or basic ROTC training.

Calling all CODIS lab directors: survey coming up

ICSI Biological Screening-ALS ICF International (ICF), with funding from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), U.S. Department of Justice, is conducting the Study of Familial DNA Searching Policies and Practices. The primary goal of the study is to produce a national portrait of familial DNA searching policies, practices, and legislation to guide states in making informed decisions regarding familial searching.

As a key part of this study, ICF is surveying all state and local CODIS laboratories to learn about key considerations, opinions, and varied practices related to familial DNA searching in the U.S. To help accomplish this, NFSTC is encouraging all Laboratory Directors representing CODIS laboratories to complete a brief online survey. All eligible Laboratory Directors will receive an email in early December with a unique link to complete the survey. To ensure the survey is completed as fully as possible, Laboratory Directors are also encouraged to seek input from and/or complete the survey in coordination with their CODIS Administrator as needed.

For additional information about the survey, please contact the ICF Survey Administrator at
