exclusive focus on Strengthening Forensic Science
Because CIFS offers a new idea, and seeks for the first time to bridge a significant gap between the scientific community and the legal community in the area of forensic science, it needs meaningful financial support at the outset. CIFS intends to provide data and programs that can improve the reliability of forensic evidence in the courts of this nation, without being dependent on government or law enforcement funding that can limit its objectivity. Therefore, it will continue to need grants and both restricted and unrestricted gifts. These gifts of course are tax-deductible, as all of the work of CIFS is charitable and educational. The leadership team of the Center for Integrity in Forensic Sciences is eager to meet you, to speak with you or your group, and to collaborate with you if you share the Center’s commitment to improve the safety, credibility, and accuracy of forensic sciences in our criminal courtrooms, and thus the fairness and reliability of outcomes in those courtrooms.
