Forensic Science: From the Crime Scene to the Crime Lab is a stimulating, accessible introduction to forensic science that is ideal for nonscientists. The authors focus on practical applications of forensic technologies, integrating scientific methods into discussions of forensic applications. A major focus is the role of the crime-scene investigator in preserving, recording and collecting physical evidence at the crime scene.
The 4th Edition includes new information on body worn cameras, the FBI Next Generation Identification system, and the Combined DNA Indexing System. It also has a new chapter on forensic biometrics and facial recognition. Numerous case files have been added to select chapters to illustrate how forensic technology is applied to solving crimes of notoriety.
