About the program
Are you curious about Forensic Science and how it is used to solve crimes?
Many crimes are solved by a "smoking gun" such as an eyewitness or being caught in the act. Other crimes are more complex to solve and require forensic evidence to identify and prove the perpetrator's guilt.
