In episode one of the forensic advancement season, Just Science interviews John Collins, an instructor and consultant from Critical Victories, and Jay Henry, the laboratory director of the Utah Department of Public Safety. Listen along as our guests discuss how crime labs can create environments that are more appealing to the younger generation of professionals and the challenges directors are facing with retention. Stay tuned to find out about the delicate balance of casework completion and retention strategies.
