Grant Received from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ)
The award was given under an NIJ Fundamental Research Grant Program titled Improve Understanding of the Accuracy, Reliability, and Measurement Validity of Forensic Science Disciplines (FY2010). Ms. Hanson’s research involved gathering, managing and analyzing hand printed and cursive data collected over a span of three years. This research project resulted in multiple papers; however, more specifically the article titled, DEVELOPMENT OF INDIVIDUAL HANDWRITING CHARACTERISTICS IN ~1800 STUDENTS: STATISTICAL ANALYSIS AND LIKELIHOOD RATIOS THAT EMERGE OVER AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME.

One of the most important pieces of working with forensic evidence and running a private investigation business is keeping up with ever-advancing technology and practices. I have attended over 400 hours of specialized training and workshops sponsored by forensic organizations to continue my education in the field of Forensic Questioned Document Examinations. Please see the downloadable document below listing all training and workshops I have completed.
