Forensic investigations are an important part of the overall scope of research in the course of solving crimes.
In today’s forensic investigations, one finds many subfields, techniques, technologies, and procedures that colleagues were already using successfully 20, 30, or 50 years ago. Scientific advancements 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 crucial developments.
However, 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 (which may be relied upon in court) depend on substantial results and evidences, so there must be confidence in the accuracy of these outcomes. Hasty conclusions based on unverified results could have detrimental effects on all involved.
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 numerous, renowned laboratories all over the world in order to generate additional analyses that cannot be developed in-house.
