Third Forensic Science Symposium to be Held in Belize this March

The Third Belize Forensic Science Symposium is set for March 11, 2022. The Government of Belize and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) co-funded the Symposium, which will be held virtually, and is open for registration by participants from Belize as well as from countries in other regions of the world. This professional forensic science conference, organized this year with support from the Infosegura Project is implemented in Belize through the Ministry of Home Affairs and New Growth Industries. It is geared toward continuing professional development and continuing medical education for forensic, legal, medical, law enforcement and academic practitioners. Speakers at the conference will include Judges, Forensic Pathologists, Forensic Analysts, Crime Scene Experts, Legal Medicine Experts, Professors, Managers and Laboratory Directors. The specific objectives of the Symposium are to increase stakeholder awareness of the role forensic science and forensic medicine both play in the justice system. The Belize National Forensic Science Service co-hosted its first Symposium along with the University of Belize in 2019, which was followed by a virtual event in 2020 co-hosted with the University of Ottawa,Canada. These initiatives have, since their inception, been oriented towards Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16 which aims to achieve Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions.
