The economy has been a stressor at all levels of law enforcement. The good news: Technological advances are offsetting some of the fiscal challenges. When the first forensic lasers appeared in the mid-1980s, they weighed 100 lbs. or more, illuminated half of a square-inch at a time and cost $50,000 and up. Since then, research and new technology have joined to introduce high-end, tunable forensic light sources, powerful handheld single-wavelength units, and most recently, and importantly, highly affordable LED units.
