FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Houston Forensic Science Center is launching a redesigned website on June 30
meant to better meet its mission of transparency and provide the public with easily
accessible information about the organization.
As on the current website, the new website will provide viewers with images and
information about HFSC’s eight sections. Contact information will be readily accessible
and the public will be able to request information online.
But the new website will also provide the public with up-to-date information about
laboratory operations. HFSC’s goal is not only to provide the justice system with
quality, accurate science, but also to make laboratory results and other documentation
available to all parties early in the process when the evidence can have real impact on
the outcome.
We invite you to visit the website on June 30 and get a peek at the forensic work done at
HFSC.
HFSC is a local government corporation that provides forensic services to the City of
Houston and other local agencies. HFSC is overseen by a Board of Directors appointed
by the Mayor of Houston and confirmed by the Houston City Council. Its management
structure is designed to be responsive to a 2009 recommendation by the National
Academy of Sciences that called for crime laboratories to be independent of law
enforcement and prosecutorial branches of government.
HFSC currently has eight forensic sections.
