Our Mission

The mission of this association is to provide educational seminars to members of the law enforcement community, to disseminate useful information related to all the disciplines of the forensic sciences, to provide local administration in the state of Wisconsin for the international professional certification programs of the International Association for Identification, and to encourage the highest ethical standards in the collection, preservation, and examination of evidence.

To carry out our mission, the association has a large pool of active members representing several forensic disciplines to include, but not limited to, AFIS, audio enhancement, bloodstain pattern interpretation, crime scene processing, criminal information technology, footwear identification, forensic art, forensic imaging, forensic odontology, latent prints (fingerprints, palm prints, and footprints), police photography, and tire track identification. These active members are speakers at our annual educational seminar, write professional articles for our quarterly newsletter, serve as technical advisors on the association’s science and practice committee, and write professional tips for the tips page of this web site.
