How accurate can we be?
Is your agency attempting ISO 17025 accreditation?

If so, most of the hard work has already been done in establishing a method of validation and accuracy assessment.

As a member of an accredited laboratory, Michael Haag has insights that can guide you through your ISO/ASCLD process.

If your agency is in need of training or information regarding the use, capabilities,
and specialized products that can be generated using a 3D laser scanning,
contact Forensic Science Consultants. Michael Haag has extensive
training in the use of the Leica ScanStation scanners.

He has also published and presented papers detailing how these revolutionary tools
can open new doors in crime scene investigation (particularly shooting scene reconstruction)
and courtroom presentation of scenes. Presentations have been given by
Michael Haag regarding trajectory analysis, validation of the use of scanning
in crime scene measurement, validation of scanning for use in trajectory
measurement, and post blast (VBIED) scanning.
