It’s not every day that you get a visit from one of our country’s leading forensic scientists. So, it was a special day when Dr. Henry Lee stopped by CSI headquarters in Keasbey recently. While a visit from Dr. Lee is always a special occasion for our company, Dr. Lee is by no means a stranger to CSI. He and CSI CEO William Yeh go way back; to about fifteen years ago when they met at a business conference. Dr. Lee was very interested in William’s mission for his new company, and so ended up serving on CSI’s Board of Directors for two years. Dr. Lee has since served as an expert consultant to CSI, augmenting our own staff’s subject matter expertise in law enforcement, judicial and government administration.
In case you are not familiar with Dr. Lee’s celebrated career, he is often touted as one of the most knowledgeable and experienced forensic scientists in the world. He has investigated such high profile cases as the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping case, the OJ Simpson and JonBenet Ramsey cases and even the reexamination of the JFK assassination. He is an author of thirty books and over 300 articles. Dr. Lee is the Forensic Science, serves as Chief Emeritus of the Connecticut State Police and is Founder and Professor of the Forensic Science Program at the University of New Haven (Connecticut)
As Dr. Lee has supported CSI projects with his criminal justice and forensic expertise, CSI has, in turn, provided technical support for some of Dr. Lee’s projects. CSI was in the process of developing a case and document management system that includes our InfoShare™ Investigation and Evidence modules, for use in Dr. Lee‘s Forensic Science Lab, and that is what spurred his most recent visit to CSI. During his visit, he InfoShare CAD and RMS systems. An exchange of information with Dr. Lee always adds to the depth of our staff’s knowledge and the robustness of our product capabilities.

As a company driven by being far above par in meeting the needs of law enforcement and others in the field of criminal investigations, CSI feels that working with Dr. Henry Lee is definitely like hitting hole in one!
