Forensic Science is key to ensuring justice by offering scientifically centered information
to facilitate physical evidence analysis. It ensures evidence gathered during the investigation is
analyzed in a crime laboratory and the results forwarded to the court. Furthermore, forensic
science involves careful study of evidence on a crime, allowing the determination of a crime’s
facts even without evidence from eyewitnesses. The field includes a diverse collection of
forensic experts and tools, with all pools working together to complement each other and achieve
credible results.
Failure to have a system forensics department and a fully functional lab compromise
forensic activities. A forensic department ensures the smooth running of all scopes of operation
in forensic science. The principal areas of operation include forensic biology, forensic
odontology, controlled substance, forensic toxicology, forensic anthropology, trace evidence,
cyber forensics, impression and pattern evidence, and ballistics (Peterson & Hickman, 2015).
Each of these areas plays a unique role in ensuring facts about a crime are determined. Forensic
biology uses DNA to help in confirmation of an individual’s identification and relation to a
crime. Forensic odontology facilitates confirmation of bodies left in an unidentifiable state, while
controlled substances area aids detection of drugs with the potential of abuse and assists law
enforcement agencies in curbing drug abuse and drug-related violence. Forensic toxicology uses
biological samples to test for toxins and drugs. Forensic pathology aids in the examination of a
corpse to determine...

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
