You've been asked to take part in a meeting regarding the possible benefit of purchasing some advanced forensic technologies to help the currently outdated equipment at your local crime lab. Attending the discussion will be the city manager, police chief, and senior investigators from your department's criminal investigation division (including you). Your chief would like you and the other investigators to really sell the benefits and potential of advanced forensic capabilities to the city manager. In preparation for the meeting, analyze some possible benefits of upgrading your laboratory's forensic equipment and capability. Additionally, prepare a detailed outline with talking points you could use to contribute to the meeting. Be sure to have exs ready of some advanced forensic tools, their basic purpose, and how those tools would benefit your laboratory and department if successfully integrated into your available forensic arsenal.
