A Word from the President
in the same place
and at the same time.
Union is the key word of interFORENSICS: to unite state and federal criminal experts from a large number of areas of expertise; to unite judges, members of the Public Prosecutor’s Office, public defenders and lawyers around a theme so important to justice; to unite researchers, students, forensic sciences professionals and companies that operate in the area, in the same place and at the same time. This is the essence of the Brazilian Academy of Forensic Sciences – union. The event also unites several key entities to discuss Justice and Public Safety.
Science and justice must always walk together, and at interFORENSICS they are united as well.
