The Institute for Forensic Science provides support to law enforcement agencies, the judicial system, students, and other entities with forensic science needs by offering educational and research opportunities, training, and services.  Since 2007, the Institute has provided law enforcement training to approximately 2,000 personnel.  Some of our core courses include Advanced Crime Scene Investigation, Death Scene Investigation, Fingerprint Comparisons, Computer Forensics, Digital Forensic Photography, Blood Spatter Analysis, and much more.


The Institute is committed to achieving the highest forensic standards through the sharing of ideas, problem solving, dedication to pro social values and the enhancement of national security. We believe that the measure of success is demonstrated by our commitment to these principles and ideals.
