The Center for Statistics and Applications in Forensic Evidence (CSAFE) is building a statistically sound and scientifically solid foundation for the analysis and interpretation of forensic evidence, as well as improving quantitative literacy among forensic practitioners, legal professionals and other stakeholders through educational opportunities.
CSAFE collaborates with researchers and forensic scientists to develop highly practical, actionable courses that increase your ability to apply statistical analysis to the interpretation of forensic evidence. These include our new, two-part short course, Sampling for Forensic Practitioners, and our three-part short course, Statistical Thinking for Forensic Professionals.

CSAFE is providing training and education for a wide range of forensic science stakeholders, including forensic practitioners and law enforcement, lawyers and judges, statisticians and measurement scientists, students of all levels, and the public.
