Forensic investigations are an important part of the overall scope of research in the course of solving crimes.
In the forensic investigations of today, one finds many subfields, techniques, technologies and procedures in which colleagues were already successfully active 20, 30 or 50 years ago. Nevertheless, progress and science have given us many fantastic new developments in the last decades, which today provide us with a significantly larger toolbox. DNA analysis and classification, digital data forensics (partly automated), forensic profiling with digital data, facial recognition and identification with the help of 2D/3D comparative analyses are just a few of the buzzwords.
But one thing is as true today as it was decades ago: All forensic examinations must be conducted with meticulousness, a high degree of professionalism and with at least double security (verification). Important decisions (also in courts) depend on substantial results and evidences and in the confidence in the accuracy of these evidences and results. Quick conclusions based on unverified results could lead to fatal wrong decisions! This can also lead to further investigations being driven in the completely wrong direction!
At ARROWS Consulting, we therefore place particular emphasis on two important points:
- the multiple verification of findings/data and information obtained. This is the basic condition for correct decisions and for the supply of evidence that can be used in court. This is absolutely necessary in criminal proceedings as well as in civil law matters (e.g. proving intent or acquiescence of crime).
- the stringent interdisciplinary cooperation of the different forensic fields
This is the basic condition for correct decisions and for providing evidence that can be used in court. This is absolutely necessary in criminal proceedings as well as in civil law matters (e.g. proof of intent for or acquiescence in a crime) to manifest the legitimacy of the claims.
ARROWS cooperates with different and renowned laboratories in different countries, spread all over the world, in order to generate additional analyses that cannot be developed in-house.
