National Forensic Science Week

Crime Scene MarkersAugust 11-17, 2013 marks the inaugural National Forensic Science Week (NFSW), recognizing the important role that proper forensic science plays in the investigation of crimes throughout the nation.  From exonerating the innocent to identifying the guilty, scientific and technical professionals serve our communities every day.  NFSTC is a proud supporter of NFSW and honors the good work of our friends and colleagues across the industry.
