Adding to their skills, many members of the Forensics Services investigators take part in specialty teams, including the Missing & Abducted Children Team, Critical Incident Stress Management Team and the Underwater Recovery Team and more.
PSO’s F1RST provides a more research-focused approach to the forensics field. While working alongside investigators on real cases, the applications learned through the research done at F1RST can be applied in the field. F1RST also includes an in-house forensic anthropologist, who often joins PSO investigators on cases, working to identify those whose remains were discovered in a variety of cases. This resource helps bring closure to victims and their loved ones. Additionally, the facilities at F1RST provide ideal environments for researchers, investigators, crime scene technicians, and other practitioners to develop new methods and strategies for critical steps in the investigative process.
