Given the almost eerie popularity of CSI in all its incarnations the stuff Roger Koppl is doing with his Institute for Forensic Science Administration is fascinating. Forensic science isn’t quite the magic portrayed on CBS, surprise, surprise. In fact, error is still a significant problem in the real world of forensic science. The Institute is about research on best practices and means of improving the administration of crime scene investigation and the rest. Some good survey work and research papers etc. Reason will be publishing a study by Roger in the coming months.
