Registration Directs Curriculum Priorities Specialized Training Program for 2000


Jane M. Homeyer

Unit Chief
Forensic Science Training Unit
Federal Bureau of Investigation
Quantico, Virginia

The call for registration for the Specialized Training Program for 2000 elicited 1,100 applicants before the September 30, 1999, deadline. Training 2000, which will be conducted by the FBI Laboratory's Forensic Science Training Unit in Quantico, Virginia, was developed "to facilitate and provide high quality training and information exchange in the forensic sciences to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the FBI's National Academy, and other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, including crime laboratories."

One objective of the Specialized Forensic Science Training Program is to coordinate state-of-the-art forensic science and crime scene instruction for federal, state, and local law enforcement investigators and crime laboratory scientists and technicians.

A second objective of the program is to ensure the efficient and equitable allocation of training resources.
