Description: 

The nature of trace, or "transfer," evidence is highly variable, and trace evidence can be found at nearly every crime or accident scene. Trace evidence is considered one of the most diverse of the forensic disciplines because it can include the analysis of hair, fiber, paint, glass, dirt/dust, botanical material, arson/fire debris, explosives and impression evidence. While trace evidence is rarely the only evidence available in an investigation, identifying the origin of foreign material found at a crime scene and linking such material with material from different locations can be a powerful evidentiary finding.

Recognizing the important impact that trace evidence has on criminal investigations and, ultimately, on our justice system, the National Institute of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Laboratory Division are co-sponsoring a Trace Evidence Symposium. The theme of the 2011 Symposium is "Science, Significance and Impact."

Present at the 2011 Trace Evidence Symposium! Call for abstracts is open.

We will focus on a broad array of emerging forensic practices, in sexual assault, interpersonal violence, human trafficking, child and elder abuse in both an urban and rural environment. This conference is designed to provide a multidisciplinary interactive and joint educational opportunity regarding promising practices when working with victims of violence.

Topics will include working with multidisciplinary teams and learning to consider all of the forensic implications on the street, in healthcare settings, and in the court room. Since violence is a health care crisis, we will focus on approaching forensic issues in a collaborative, coordinated, compassionate, competent, caring, victim-centered process.

Description: 

On Thursday, April 23, the UMKC and Kansas City communities are invited to wear jeans in honor of Denim Day. Denim Day has been internationally celebrated since 1999 in protest of an Italian High Court ruling that overturned a rape conviction because the victim was wearing jeans. Enraged by the verdict, women of the Italian Legislature protested the decision by wearing jeans to work. As news of the decision spread, so did the protest. On April 23, university students, staff, and faculty members are invited to wear denim and participate in our Denim Day celebration.
