Crime and Forensics Online

Even a nap-loving cat couldn’t miss the increased public interest in crime scene investigations, forensic evidence, and the use of DNA to catch the guilty and exonerate the innocent. TV shows like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami, and CSI: NY--along with relentless media coverage of tragic and unsolved crimes--keep more than future prosecutors and defenders focused on the legal and scientific challenges. For a general introduction to all categories of forensic evidence and new developments, check out Crime and Clues: The Art and Science of Criminal Investigation, created by an expert crime scene investigator. A virtual world of forensics resources with links are provided at Michigan State University’s Criminal Justice Resources: Forensic Science, and at Prentice Hall’s Cybrary: The World’s Criminal Justice Directory.
