Founded in 1983 by Faye Battiste Otto, registered nurse, American Forensic Nurses, Inc. (AMRN) provides specific mobile forensic evidence collection services for local, state and federal law enforcement agencies in Southern California in a professional and cost effective manner.
While practicing as a hospital Emergency Room nurse, Faye observed the excessive time wasted by law enforcement officers waiting for hospital technicians to draw blood from suspects driving under the influence, as well as any other forensic services. The delay caused by waiting for sometimes violent suspects compromised the security of hospital staff and patients. This security issue became the catalyst for the development of a mobile forensic collection service specializing in providing its services on-site at the location of the incarceration of the suspect.
Now, instead of transporting a suspect to an Emergency Room, forensically trained medical technicians from American Forensic Nurses are promptly dispatched 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. Forensic services include bodily fluid withdrawal/collection, (blood, urine and saliva), sexual assault suspect examinations, Taser dart removal and sampling for DNA analysis. Every staff technician is competent in the proper protocol for evidence collection as dictated by the various jurisdictional rules pertaining to a chain of possession, and are properly vetted to ensure professionalism and personal accountability.
American Forensic Nurses offers both sound managerial and fiscal reasons for joining the distinguished group of law enforcement agencies in Southern California currently using our mobile forensic services. Doing so ensures more cost effective community law enforcement.
