Editorial: Welcome to the 2015 Evidence Resource Guide

In this final issue of 2014, we bring you our 8th annual Evidence Resource Guide. Here, you will find a comprehensive listing of companies offering products and services for crime scene investigation, forensic science, and evidence management.

The Evidence Resource Guide is important to us (and you) because it demonstrates the diversity of companies that help support the publication, printing, and mailing of Evidence Technology Magazine—free of charge—to thousands of law enforcement professionals across the United States. Our magazine’s mission since 2003 has been to provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas regarding evidence collection, processing, and preservation. That mission would never be possible without a means for making the information readily available, even in a field where dollars for training and education can be so difficult to come by.
Simply put: We couldn’t do it without the support from the vendors you see on the last 16 pages of this issue.
So, as we move into 2015, I hope you will keep this guide handy for the next time you need to recommend, specify, or purchase new products and services. And maybe, if you have the chance, let them know you heard about them in Evidence Technology Magazine.
Best of luck to you in the New Year,
