Forensic Science Week recognizes the contribution that forensic science makes to the criminal justice system. This year, Forensic Science Week is being held September 20-26. Throughout the week, the Forensic Technology Center of Excellence (FTCoE) is engaging with the community to bolster our presence and to highlight the impact that forensic science has in the world. We’ll be highlighting different game changing technology, publishing interviews with forensic scientists, hosting a trivia contest, and releasing a special podcast episode of Just Science! Learn more about the exciting events HERE and follow @ForensicCOE on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter to stay up-to-date on news and events! Stay tuned and check back to see the exciting content we’ll be releasing to celebrate Forensic Science Week 2020.

In honor of Forensic Science Week 2020, we’re hosting a daily trivia contest with an incredible grand prize: One free registration to the 2021 AAFS Annual Scientific Meeting!  Follow us on social media and message us the correct answer to our daily trivia question to be entered into the drawing to win! The winner will be randomly selected from all entries and will be announced at the end of the week.

We would like to send a HUGE thank you to the American Academy of Forensic Sciences for the wonderful grand prize donation!
