Abstract

This article will identify alternatives for integrating key organizations and aspects of forensic science reform to further the forensic science profession. Federally legislated regulatory models are not the only viable model for governance of the forensic enterprise. A National Forensic Science Board (NFSB), modeled after one or more independent processes in other industries, could coordinate forensic programs and activities nationwide. The concepts in this presentation will stimulate discussion and debate within the forensic community about alternatives for how forensic science can oversee and direct compliance with critical precepts needed to strengthen our profession.
