OrganizationMiami-Dade Public Safety Training InstituteStart Date 10/21/2019
Country United States of America End Date 10/23/2019
StateFlorida
Meeting InformationWhat is forensic science and how is it applied in actual criminalcases? This workshop gives the answers.

Mr. John Collins' work and expertise were developed during a 20-year forensic science career in which he emerged as among t...
