Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2003, $10,000)
While DNA evidence is becoming an increasingly more common part of the criminal justice system, among those who serve victims of crime there remain large gaps in understanding of important technical issues related to this evidence. One focus point will be on the potential importance of DNA evidence in solving old and cold cases and the implications on the victims and their families.
To help fill in those gaps, under this project, IACP will support the victim component of their DNA Summit. That victim component will include hosting a panel of victims at the summit and a subsequent white paper. The objective is to raise awareness of the victim's issues and provide a foundation from which comprehensive policy and recommended practices can be developed regarding victim issues across the criminal justice system.
