Dear ASCLD Colleagues,

Last week, we had the wonderful opportunity to hear from several speakers for the Train the Director series on Developing and Unbiased Culture in Your Laboratory. If you were able to attend, that is great. If you were unable to attend, please know these are being archived for your convenience.

Our Training and Education Committee has the next installment lined up and it will equally as exciting. Be sure to mark your calendar for June 2nd and register for ASCLD Train the Directors Series- Firearms 3D Technology: Advantages and Value for Implementing 3D Technologies. Visit for more information and to register.
The presentation will demonstrate the effectiveness of integrating 3D technology into the forensic firearm/toolmark discipline and the decision analysis for selecting samples for virtual comparison. 

The Missouri Attorney General’s Office is in search of accredited, QAS qualified laboratories with both interest and capacity for testing and CODIS upload of their SAKI kits by June 2022. Please see the scope of work here which contains contact information if there are questions. 

Finally, let us give homage and honor this Memorial Day to those who have sacrificed for our freedom. 

Have a terrific week!

Be well,


Erin P. Forry

ASCLD President
