This issue discusses advances in criminal forensics. Today law enforcement can use data from cell phones, computers, credit cards, pagers, GPS devices, digital evidence, fingerprints, bite marks, blood, DNA, and other chemical and biological evidence to identify perpetrators of crimes. Daily, new challenges are being faced such as the popularity of P2P networks for pornography and the development of hazardous chemical warfare agents in the hands of terrorists and criminals.
