Barriers to Quality Achievement in Crime Laboratory Operations
Crime laboratory output consists of both quality and faulty work. The paper discusses three areas of crime laboratory functions which require upgrading: crime scene search, crime laboratory management, and proficiency. The impact on these areas of prioritization of work together with optimization of resource and the recognition of the educational problem are discussed. Keys to gaining further insight into these problems are given and referenced.
