FBI Allele Frequency Ammendments Overview

On June 30, ASCLD sponsored a webinar titled ASCLD: FBI Allele Frequency Amendments Overview – Managers Perspective and Legal Considerations which was a great success. There was over 450 participants. Tina Delgado from the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Gary Sims of California Department of Justice, Ray Wickenheiser of the New York State Police Crime Laboratory System and Matt Redle, Sheridan WY County and Prosecuting Attorney, presented.

This presentation was designed to assist Crime Lab Management to provide timely assessment, correction, notification, reporting and documentation; enabling Crime Labs to continue to earn and keep public trust. This webinar provided a high level overview of the issue by the FBI including history on the errors, their detection, correction, and the dissemination of information. It also included the laboratory directors’ perspective and legal issues that laboratories may need to consider
