Being a writer of mystery and crime, it is important to get it right when it comes to forensics. Here are a few sites we hope will be useful when writing that perfect crime scene.

ZENO’S FORENSIC SITE – A site with links to sites! Provided by Zeno Geradts, currently president of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, and a senior scientist at the Netherlands Forensic Institute of the Ministry of Justice. The site contains informational, commercial, and educational links to sites worldwide on topics ranging from arson to linguistics to photography and more.

CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION NETWORK – Information about various aspects of crime scene investigation, includes articles, videos, and links to other resources.

FORENSIC FIREARM TUTORIAL – A tutorial at the University of Utah covering everything from terminology, to ballistics and patterns of tissue injury.

POLICE ONE – A resource site for law enforcement. News, articles, videos, and other information. The site sells law enforcement equipment and has images and videos of the equipment.
