The Impact of Forensic Science Research & Development
The research and development (R&D) conducted years ago is having an impact in crime laboratories today. In crime labs across the U.S., scientists are using increasingly sophisticated technologies to bring criminals to justice and protect the innocent. Since 2009, NIJ has invested more than $127 million in forensic science R&D to develop new techniques and increase the reliability and accuracy of forensic testing. By advancing the science, NIJ is working to strengthen justice and improve public safety.
