Forensic Science Wasn’t Invented by Scientists

Although its methods are highly scientific, forensic science owes its beginnings to cops who relied heavily on observation and common sense.

The most impressive advances, such as DNA testing and UV light screening, came into the picture much later, when technology was more advanced. The practicality of investigators in the past is responsible for modern scientific forensic methods.
