This is evidence that does not forget. It is not confused by the excitement of the moment. It is not absent because human witnesses are, it is factual evidence, physical evidence cannot be wrong, it cannot perjure itself...only its interpretation can err.
-Paul L. Kirk, 1974.

An overarching goal of the NAS report, Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States; A Pathway Forward is to, “make scientific investigation as objective as possible”.  A crucial facet to achieving this goal is the elimination of cognitive bias or the tendency to process information and reach conclusions based upon what the analyst expects to see.

Until the NAS recommendations have been fully implemented, the only method to address bias and to ensure justice is independent review and evaluation of forensic testing results.

Foren-Tech’s Consulting services are designed to educate you and assist in eliminating potential bias.
