Error-prone Investigation Team shut down…..


Actually the title of the AP news article is “Error-prone Detroit police crime lab shut down“.

“….found erroneous or false findings in 10 percent of 200 random cases audited. The crime lab operation will be turned over to the state police. Barren says the lab’s commander will be removed and its 33 officers reassigned.”

I don’t know what’s more disturbing, the errors made or the corrective action taken. If your investigative processes in safety, quality, or other business transactions were audited for accuracy like a CSI lab, what would they find?… what would the reaction be if errors were made? … what would the impact be from the results or actions taken from the investigation?… when did the errors occur (evidence gathering or analysis)?
