Minister of Interior’s Message
In this modern era there is a variety of challenges for the Law Enforcement Agencies. On one hand, the evolution of science and technology has brought revival in every field but on the other, numerous new ways have evolved to commit crimes. In the wake of rapid changes in the world, the extremist and terrorist activities have also mushroomed. The advent of these new ways of crimes coupled with the conventional ones, has augmented the need of modern ways not only to fight felonies and punish the culprits, but also to stop miscarriage of justice. The NFSA is playing a key role in helping justice system by applying novel scientific techniques in solving crimes. I am sure that the NFSA will assiduously work hard to face the future challenges.
I wish the agency and the entire staff all the best in their efforts.

Director General’s Message
NFSA has come a long way. It is nice to know that officials are striving to excel in the given environment. There is no short cut to success, let do whatever that little more is required to find the truth, to know the reality. Remember the prime task remains to find the facts and uphold it.
My special gratitude to the Government of Pakistan for funding the project and standing by in the creation of the forensic agency. The initiative without doubt will have a lasting impact in determining the reality and related veracity for timely verdict.
Good luck, make us proud!

Director General, National Police Bureau
Project Director’s Message
Reliance on Forensic Science in the field of investigation can ensure fair play, justice and transparency within the criminal Justice system of our country. It is the need of the hour to promote forensic awareness among all stake holders of the legal system especially the LEAs, being the flag bearers of Rule of Law. It is equally important to refine our CSI culture. We must all learn to respect a crime scene and let the evidence remain untouched and uncorrupted until the experts complete the job of evidence collection.
I am pleased to announce that National Forensic Science Agency project is being executed with full fervour with the objective of establishing a culture of forensic awareness amongst all stakeholders involved in the process of law enforcement. To achieve the ends of promoting such a culture, at the outset, a dedicated state of the art forensic laboratory is being established at the federal capital. I am working with my team of highly qualified professionals who are the pioneers of modern forensics in Pakistan. We have convened a number of forensic awareness workshops for judges, prosecutors, media and supervisory officers of LEAs besides designing and conducting several specialized courses for forensic experts. We have state of the art equipment for analysis of forensic evidence like DNA, Questioned documents, Firearms, Finger Prints, Explosive Analysis and have a trained team of Crime Scene Investigators. Setting up of new sections including Toxicology, Serology, Pathology, Computer Forensic and Narcotics is in the offing.
I would like to express my gratitude to the Government of Pakistan, especially the Ministry of Interior and National Police Bureau for their whole hearted support to this Forensic facility. I also wish a very bright future to those who are associated with this Agency.
