[Extract] Welcome to this Special Edition of JCRPP on forensic science and intelligence. The forensic science domain possesses a wide variety of science-based disciplines with each division having its own set of nuances and complexities associated with their own form of evidence. This array of complex issues makes it difficult to discuss forensic science from a purely holistic perspective, however the overarching aim of this discipline is to assist investigators and court decision makers in understanding facts through scientifically examined evidence. A broader public purview has also occurred within forensic science through popular culture television shows such as CSI and a host of Australian and overseas universities have established courses that specialised in forensic science as a core area of study (Weaver et al., 2012).
