The governmental missives about improving forensics always gloss over or ignore what the NAS 2009 report and the 2016 PCAST report itemized as areas needing reform.
Here we go:
“The new guidance implements additional quality assurance measures based on science-informed practices, enhances forensic capacity and efficiency, and increases coordination and collaboration between the Department and state, local, and federal partners.”
Apparently Latent Print FEDERAL examiners have been given limit to what assurances of a “match” exists from their analyses.
Anyone else care to elaborate??
How about reviewing past practices of the use of forensics in cases where the innocent have been convicted? To read this DOJ PIO report, that never happens.
