Federalpol can count on the collaboration of forensic biology experts, Consultants of the Court coming from different Carabinieri scientific investigation departments. These highly specialized professionals are able to carry out different tests, such as toxicological analyses or paternity tests, and to operate, in collaboration with law firms, on the crime scene, always according to the laws in force.
Federalpol scientific staff ensures maximum reliability to law firms. This area is very sensitive: it's not just a matter of laboratory tests, but of knowing how to adequately act, collaborating with the Defence or the Civil Party, depending on the case. It is actually necessary to correctly know how to detect and preserve biological traces before the test, thus to avoid contamination. After getting the evidence is crucial to be able to interpret any possible result.
"In the field of forensic biology and genetics, experience and professional competence are crucial. Without them it is not actually possible to make available to law firms everything they expect from the texts, which is, accusing or defensive evidence. Once the results of the evidence are obtained, forensic biology professionals must be able to interpret them by making comparisons with the suspect's profile and, possibly, based on statistical calculations. Once all the data have been collected and interpreted, the forensic biologist prepares a technical report which will be provided to the firm. If necessary, he will appear before the Court to provide clarifications on his work which only at this stage, becomes real evidence.
