Reports at the event said that, thanks to the sound direction of the Ministry of Public Security’s leaders, the good coordination among other professional units as well as great efforts of forensic police experts and workers, the criminal forensic science sector of the Public Security Forces overcame difficulties and achieved positive results in performing its assigned duties.
Particularly, the sector improved the quality and effectiveness of both scene examinations and forensic tests in criminal cases, especially serious criminal cases. Especially, the force detected and identified some new types of narcotics as soon as they appeared in Vietnam. The force also discovered new ways of using narcotics, and reported them on criminal police units, contributing to preventing and combating drug trafficking and abuse.
During the conference, delegates focused on discussing the force’s key tasks in the second half and proposed measures to improve the effectiveness of criminal forensic work.
Addressing the event, Deputy Minister Le Quy Vuong hailed the achievements attained by the criminal forensic science sector in recent times, saying that the sector’s good performance greatly contributed to preventing and fighting crimes.
However, the Deputy Minister of Public Security pointed out some weaknesses and limitations in the criminal forensic work. Thus, he urged the Institute of Criminal Sciences to recommend the Ministry of Public Security’s leadership to invest in more equipment, machinery and facilities for local criminal forensic science teams.
Deputy Minister Le Quy Vuong also asked the force to research and apply new scientific and technological advancements to the work so as to improve its working capacity.
