Justice can only be served by involving highly trained and motivated scientists dedicated to providing an ethical approach to the analysis and interpretation of physical evidence. The 2009 National Academies of Science report on Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States: A Path Forward states that, "code of ethics should be in place across all forensic organizations to which all forensic practitioners and laboratories should adhere."
An ethical approach increases the success in both investigations and trial by presenting evidence in a proper light and ensuring public trust.
