Today, Investigations have challenged the Police and Forensic Community to leverage the ability to analyze evidence with more detail than ever. At the same time, “Hate Crimes” present a special set of investigative requirements. With the advancement in technology, criminal activities have accelerated at a rapid pace with the classification of crimes have changed to be inclusive of acts that go beyond harassment and vandalism. “Hate Crimes” not only results in negative actions but have an effect on our entire society attacking at the moral and constitutional structures of our lives. Many major cases that have taken place throughout this country have remained unsolved. Dr. Henry C. Lee and the staff of the Henry C. Lee Institute of Forensic Science, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and our Community Leaders will discuss “Hate Crimes” and how they can be investigated in an effort to provide a better understanding of
what took place and how new forensic techniques could lead to the eventual suspect. However, the good news is proper investigative techniques and the forensic analysis of physical evidence is ever expanding as new technologies come on board. Following Locard’s exchange principle, in the case of “Hate Crimes”, trails also, there is always an exchange of all types of physical evidence.
