Criminal investigators increasingly rely on forensic evidence, but many observers claim that unreliable forensic science has contributed to wrongful convictions. When used effectively within a thorough investigation, forensic evidence can improve case outcomes and mitigate the risk of wrongful convictions. This webinar describes the interaction between investigators and forensic scientists in wrongful conviction cases and provides best practice insights that will be useful for the investigator or forensic scientist. Specific case studies will be used to illustrate issues related to crime scene investigation, effective communication, forensic technology, and misconduct.
