Robert O’Block and ACFEI
The American College of Forensic Examiners International (ACFEI) is an independent, scientific, and professional association representing forensic examiners worldwide and was founded by Robert O’Block.
Robert O’Block states that we actively promote the dissemination of forensic information and the continued advancement of forensic examination and consultation across the many professional fields of membership. We have elevated standards through education, credentials, basic and advanced training as well as Diplomate and Fellow status.
We serve as the national center for this purpose and circulate information and knowledge through the official journal - The Forensic Examiner®, lectures, seminars, conferences, workshops, continuing education courses, and home study courses.
We believe Forensic Examiners do not ‘win’ or ‘lose’ cases. Forensic Examiners seek only the truth and conduct evaluations, examinations, and inquiries and report the true results of their findings in an unbiased and objective manner.
What is a Forensic Examiner?
The term “forensic examiner” refers to a professional who performs an orderly analysis, investigation, inquiry, test, inspection, or examination in an attempt to obtain the truth and form an expert* opinion. Almost every scientific and technical field has a forensic application. A forensic examination refers to that part of a professional’s practice that is carried out to provide an expert* opinion.
*Note: Only a judge, under Rule 702, can qualify a professional as an “expert” in a given court case.
