Task Force on Forensic Science

Task Force on Forensic Science (TFFS)

The TFFS was created out of Executive Order 2020-4.

As of March 31, 2021, meetings of public bodies can be held remotely only in certain circumstances, including where a state of emergency or state of disaster is declared.  In recognition of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Ingham County, Eaton County, and the City of Lansing have declared local states of emergency.  Accordingly, all government business in the Capitol Region can continue to be conducted electronically by telephonic or video conferencing. 

Unless otherwise noted and posted as a virtual meeting at least 18 hours before a regularly scheduled meeting begins, the Task Force will hold its regular meetings, either at the Michigan State Police Headquarters, 7150 Harris Drive, Dimondale, Michigan or the Michigan Hall of Justice, 925 W. Ottawa Street, Lansing, Michigan. The location will be indicated under the meeting date.
