FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Houston Forensic Science Center has launched a redesigned website meant to
better meet its mission of transparency and provide the public with easily accessible
information about the organization.
As on the current website, the new website provides viewers with images and
information about HFSC’s eight sections. Contact information is readily accessible and
the public is able to request information online.
But the new website also offers up-to-date information about laboratory operations.
HFSC’s goal is not only to provide the justice system with quality, accurate science, but
also to make laboratory results and other documentation available to all parties early in
the process when the evidence can have real impact on the outcome.
We invite you to visit the website, hfsctx.gov, and take a peek at
the forensic work done at HFSC.
HFSC is a local government corporation that provides forensic services to the City of
Houston and other local agencies. HFSC is overseen by a Board of Directors appointed
by the Mayor of Houston and confirmed by the Houston City Council. Its management
structure is designed to be responsive to a 2009 recommendation by the National
Academy of Sciences that called for crime laboratories to be independent of law
enforcement and prosecutorial branches of government.
HFSC currently has eight forensic sections.
