CSI Sponsors Arnold Markle Symposium for the Second Straight Year
Once again, CSI Technology Group is supporting the work of internationally renowned forensic scientist Dr. Henry Lee and forensic science education by sponsoring the Arnold Markle Symposium on the campus of the University of New Haven. This is the second year in a row that CSI has sponsored this conference, which honors the late Arnold Markle, a well known prosecutor for the City of New Haven and a Connecticut State Attorney, who strongly believed that making training programs affordable to police officers would lead to solving more crimes.
Last year’s conference focused on the investigation of sexual assault, serial offenders and sexual abuse. This year’s topic will be death investigation, with special emphasis on fire and arson, sexual and drug related deaths, and motor vehicle deaths. This 21st annual symposium is scheduled for October 8 and 9 and will introduce advances in Forensic Science technology and new trends in causes of deaths and investigative techniques.
Dr. Henry Lee created the forensic science program at the University of New Haven in 1974 and in 1998 founded the Henry C. Lee Institute of Forensic science, affiliated with the University and specializing in interdisciplinary research, training, testing, consulting and education in forensic science. The Henry C. Lee Institute of Forensic Science links scholars, forensic scientists, the legal community, and professional practitioners of many fields in addressing the scientific and social issues confronting forensic science and the criminal justice system throughout the world. Dr. Lee has assisted in the investigations of more than 8,000 criminal cases, includingthe O.J. Simpson case, lectures throughout the world and has authored hundreds of articles in professional journals and more than 25 textbooks on various forensic science and crime solving topics. He is an expert consultant for CSI Technology Group.
