The Titusville Police Department’s Forensic Investigations Division (FID) has recently been recognized for the implementation of national forensic science standards.
FID achieved this honor from The National Institute of Standards and Technology-sponsored Organization of Scientific Area Committees (OSAC) because the division implemented these new registry standards ensuring the reliability of the practice of forensic science.
“We congratulate the Titusville Police Department Forensic Investigations Division for implementing the high-quality standards of the OSAC Registry into their operations. In today’s world of complex forensic science analysis and the increasing scrutiny by criminal courts on the quality of forensic evidence, it is critically important for judges and juries to have confidence in the testimony of forensic experts. We are delighted by the growing list of forensic science agencies, now including the Titusville PD, that have demonstrated their commitment to improving quality. We look forward to continuing to work with the Titusville PD as an OSAC Implementer of new standards.”
-John Paul Jones II, OSAC Program Manager with the National Institute of Standards and Technology
“This national recognition of our forensic science standards and practices solidifies our dedication and vigilance in our scientific disciplines”, said Titusville Police FID Manager Amanda Wright.
