Critical Victories’ Releases “HR Management in the Forensic Science Laboratory” on Amazon

Published by Academic Press, “HR Management in the Forensic Science Laboratory - A 21st Century Approach to Effective Crime Lab Leadership,” is now available on Written by John Collins, SHRM-SCP, founder and CEO of Critical Victories, the 500-page volume guides administrators in sharpening their leadership methods in the high-stakes field of forensic science.

According to the Department of Justice, forensic laboratories annually support over 3 million U.S. criminal cases. Labs become less responsive to the needs of law enforcement when they are not managed well, which slows down resolving a case or arresting a perpetrator. Collins’ book will help managers understand how the niche profession works even if they are from non-forensic backgrounds — transitioning scientists and executives alike into more efficient workplace leaders.

“I've already been contacted by forensic laboratory administrators, in the U.S. and overseas, seeking information,” said Collins, whose book becomes available in print on Feb 23. “I expect that this book will … improve how they support and manage their forensic laboratories.”

Collins began his own forensic career in 1993 at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation after graduating from Michigan State University in 1992. His experiences have led to over a quarter century of service in criminal justice and human resources, including his former role as director of forensic science at the Michigan State Police.

“It makes me feel good that somewhere, somehow, people will be just a little bit safer because this book was written,” Collins said. “I don't think a person should have to be a naturally gifted leader to provide good leadership.”
