Attend “GSR Basics and Beyond” at the NJIAI 26th Annual Educational Conference


What is GSR?
Why is it important to collect a GSR sample correctly?
How is GSR analyzed?
What can you expect from GSR testimony?

Julia Patterson and I will answer those questions and more at the 26th Annual Educational Conference of the NJ State International Association for Identification (NJ IAI). Once you attend our presentation, “GSR Basics and Beyond,” you’ll have a better understanding of how an agency should collect GSR samples and how those samples are analyzed and interpreted. At the end of the 90-minute presentation you can put us on the hot seat during a “mock trial” when you’ll get to take on the role of lawyer and ask us the questions. We’ll be targeting information for both law enforcement and laboratory personnel alike, so sign up to reserve your space now. Stop by during the exhibition and visit our booth.

RJ Lee Group is only the second private laboratory in the world to receive accreditation by the ASCLD/LAB Accreditation Board for GSR services and the first and only private laboratory to offer ASCLD/LAB accredited GSR distance determination services.
