Forensic Science Report

Forensic science methods, once limited to serious crimes like rape and homicide, now play an integral role in investigating volume crimes such as burglary and vehicle theft. This comprehensive review seeks to consolidate global research on the application of forensic techniques in volume crime investigations. Its primary objectives encompass identifying the mechanisms behind the use of forensic science in crime investigation, assessing the strengths and weaknesses of forensic utilization, elucidating forensic science's contribution to effective and efficient crime detection and conviction, and shedding light on the future of forensic science alongside emerging technologies.

The integration of technology into our daily lives has propelled crime-solving into a realm reminiscent of science fiction. From retinal scanning to trace evidence analysis, forensic technologies have evolved remarkably. This dynamic field stands as one of the world's fastest-growing sectors, evident in the heightened demand for forensic science technicians. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS 2022) forecasts an 11% job increase for forensic science technicians between 2021 and 2031 on a national scale. This growth surge is attributed to novel forensic techniques that have bolstered the availability and credibility of objective forensic information. Courts and law enforcement agencies are hiring more staff to leverage these techniques for trial-worthy data analysis.
