Outsourcing Forensic Analysis

In a recent article, Evidence Technology Magazine explores the outsourcing of forensic evidence processing. Yesterday, I posted a link to Forensic Magazine's article on public / private partnerships. Seeing a theme here?

Budgets are shrinking. Backlogs are growing. Agencies are having trouble handling the backlogs and can't hire new staff. Where to turn? Private industry.

When it comes to the analysis and clarification of video / image based evidence, I get requests for referrals all the time. Same holds true for audio. I'm starting to see a lot more requests for help with cell phones. Remember, if you are in need of assistance ... and you're from a public or private agency, law firm, or just a citizen in need of help ... I can get you pointed in the right direction. Feel free to send me a note (jimhoerricks (at) gmail (dot) com). The only dumb questions are the ones that go unasked.
