    Document examiners, being a heterogeneous group, have as many views as to what role a document examiner should play in the adversary system as there are members. This section is composed of examiners engaged in civil practice, law enforcement, and the academic world. And the law enforcement group is further divided into examiners working for local or municipal police agencies, state police agencies, and federal investigative agencies. Each of these groups views its role in the adversary system differently, and each individual in these groups has his own concept of this role, depending on his position in the group, his philosophy, bureaucratic pressures exerted upon him if he is in governmental service, client pressure exerted on the Examiner in private practice, etc. All these factors influence the document examiner's personal approach as to the role he envisions for himself and which he will play in the adversary system.
