Strathclyde University’s forensic program began way before DNA showed up in the 80’s and clearly operates untouched by police management of their operations and decision-making.  In the US, the police forensic experts can show up in uniforms or wearing their badges. That surely mixes up police agendas, employment bias and ‘science’ used to reach preconceived theories of guilt. The article is a good short read about SU’s history of ‘working’ cases independently.

Here is the website for the MSc program at U of Strathclyde in Glascow, Scotland.
