Captain John C. Alfred discusses some pertinent points for forensic investigators working in law enforcement at DFRWS USA.
John: Well, good morning. And thank you so much for having me. I’m excited and, I got to tell you, a little bit intimidated as well. When I saw the list of some of the people that were showing up, it was the rock stars of forensics. I was pretty impressed and a little intimidated. I know Spaff gave a great keynote yesterday. Is he in the audience?
I’m a Boilermaker myself – I say I’m a boilermaker, because my daughter’s a boilermaker, and she just graduated, she was an undergrad from Purdue, so I know Purdue. I could start off with a quick moment of silence. We just lost a police officer and a civilian in – next door, in Massachusetts. The police officer was shot and killed in the line of duty this past Sunday. So, if I use one second – a moment of silence for him and the civilian that was killed.
