Forensics News

Forensics, or forensic science, is the application of scientific methods and techniques to the investigation of crimes. The field encompasses various disciplines, such as DNA analysis, toxicology, fingerprinting, ballistics, and digital forensics, each contributing to the identification, collection, preservation, and examination of physical evidence. Forensic experts analyze this evidence to reconstruct events, identify perpetrators, and support legal proceedings. Modern forensics has grown to include psychological profiling, facial reconstruction, and advanced chemical testing, significantly enhancing the accuracy and scope of criminal investigations. The use of forensics has become crucial in solving crimes that might otherwise have remained mysteries, providing not only tools for conviction but also for exoneration, thereby playing a vital role in ensuring justice is served.
