UK Forensic Regulator talks about “car crash” in Forensic Science

Image result for car crash cartoon

Dr Tully is the Forensic Regulator in the UK. She has somewhat of an oversight role but seems to have little enforcement power. Her unit has published extensively on reporting and ethical considerations in the world of UK police forensics. The now privatised UK forensic system is being asked to make some advances.

Here she talks about why forensics needs a fix and the time is now. The US, however has AG Sessions to deal with regarding his recalcitrant belief that the police can police themselves.

Here she talks about certain forensic disciplines not meeting their deadlines for constructing published protocols and definitions¬†using “car crash” as a descriptor. (innocuous subscription required).
