    Robert Fried |

    The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic has resulted in many companies transitioning to a fully remote workforce. The availability of high-speed internet and video conferencing has allowed people to work virtually, from almost anywhere.

These principles, regardless of evidence type, are based on the foundations of forensic science and address how evidence should be recognized, identified, collected, preserved, and examined
