Description

NCJ 194197. Sarah V. Hart, director, National Institute of Justice. Intended for use by law enforcement and other criminal justice professionals who have the responsibility for reviewing and investigating unsolved cases. Provides basic information to assist agencies in the complex process of case review with a specific emphasis on using DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) evidence to solve previously unsolvable crimes.

DNA has proven to be a powerful tool in the fight against crime. DNA evidence can identify suspects, convict the guilty, and exonerate the innocent. Throughout the Nation, criminal justice professionals are discovering that advancements in DNA technology are breathing new life into old, cold, or unsolved criminal cases. Evidence that was previously unsuitable for DNA testing because a biological sample was too small or degraded may now yield a DNA profile. Development of the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) at the State and national levels enables law enforcement to aid investigations by effectively and efficiently identifying suspects and linking serial crimes to each other.
