Addendum to the PCAST Report on Forensic Science in Criminal Courts
This letter responds to stakeholder input concerning the 2016 PCAST report “Forensic Science in Criminal Courts: Ensuring Scientific Validity of Feature-Comparison Methods.” PCAST reaffirms its commitment to the need for empirically validated scientific evidence of existing forensic practices. PCAST also urges the forensic science community to establish standards through the formation of a Forensic Science Study Group and to advance research, standards, and practices in the U.S. judicial system.
