  • Description
    The American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/ Laboratory Accreditation Board (ASCLD/LAB) evolved as a way to safeguard the criminal justice system against tainted evidence, coerced testimony and negligence in forensic gathering. Before system-wide investigations were conducted and even after, the corruption in the police force and scientific labs we rely upon is corrupted to a degree that would shock us all. In this CLE course, you will be presented with examples of this rampant corruption and learn how to ensure the veracity of evidence you need to present at court.
