Each year the IACP Forensic Science Committee recognizes the significant impact forensic science has on the criminal justice system and seeks to acknowledge pioneering efforts in this field. The August Vollmer Excellence in Forensic Science Award was created to honor proactive, innovative uses of forensic technologies by law enforcement.
This year three awards will be presented for ground-breaking use of existing or new forensic technologies and investigative uses of forensic science. The winners of this year’s awards are: 1.) the Los Angeles Police Department, Scientific Investigation Division, Serology/DNA Unit for Current or Past Contribution by a Police Agency in Forensic Science, 2.) the U.S. Army, Defense Forensic Science Center for Significant Investigative Value in a Major Crime, and 3.) Mr. Robert A. Walsh, President and CEO, Forensic Technology, Inc. for Innovation in Forensic Technology by an Individual. The winners are commended for their dedication and commitment to advancing the investigative and evidentiary uses of forensic services. Awards will be presented to the winners at IACP’s Annual Conference in Orlando, FL.
