Tampa Bay, Fla. – The National Clearinghouse for Science Technology and the Law at Stetson University College of Law will make a presentation about forensic evidence resources and opportunities for law enforcement at the National Association of Police Organizations, 27th annual convention, at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in New Orleans on Sunday, July 24 at 10:45 am.
Clearinghouse Deputy Director Gregory Hill will present the program. Hill is a member of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, International Homicide Investigators Association and a former Tampa police officer, private attorney and assistant public defender. He is working with the National Forensic Science and Technology Center on developing a DNA Mock Trial for President George W. Bush’s DNA Initiative.
The Clearinghouse encourages scientific, technological and legal communities to share resources in the interest of justice.
“We look forward to providing even more services to the legal, scientific and law enforcement communities,” said Carol Henderson, Clearinghouse director.
Under Henderson’s direction, Stetson’s National Clearinghouse, a program of the National Institute of Justice, was formed in 2003 to advance the use of science and technology in the law.
The Clearinghouse provides a comprehensive online database of legal and scientific research and educates lawyers, judges and law enforcement personnel about new developments in forensic technology and forensic evidence handling in the courts.
