Using Genetic Results to Identify Human Remains

This course is designed to provide law enforcement agencies with the information needed to develop protocols that will ensure consistent and effective investigations of missing person cases. The material in this course is applicable to all law enforcement agencies, regardless of size, and will cover free resources that will assist agencies to better respond to and investigate missing person cases.

This course discusses statistics that are generated from genetic data obtained from human remains and family reference samples. These statistics are communicated to investigators via Missing Persons Reports and databases. We will describe common statistical measures and demonstrate why numerical values are not always as expected, and will explain how DNA can be used with other disciplines to confirm an identity.
