Quote associated with Larry Turner as a Speaker

“ Connecting Forensic Science to the World One Person at a Time ”

“ As Director of my Crime Laboratory, I was very interested in obtaining information about the ASCLD-LAB accreditation process. When Mr. Turner came and presented his information to my laboratory staff, he was very organized and the information he presented was very thorough and very easy to understand. After his seminar, my laboratory staff feels confident that we can better prepare for what is expected of our laboratory when we seek Crime Laboratory Accreditation. The seminar is a must for any crime laboratory seeking accreditation! Exceptional speaker!”

Jackie Gardner, Director
City of Jackson Crime Laboratory

“ I have listened to a lot of Expert Witnesses in my courtroom and Mr. Turner is one of the most knowledgeable witnesses in his areas of expertise in Forensic Science. As a Judge in the judicial system, it is imperative that I understand the importance of the forensic evidence from the Crime Laboratory when I am presiding over the cases in my courtroom. Mr. Turner is very energetic in his presentations and he makes sure that each juror gets a vivid picture of his forensic analyses and how his results apply to the case he is testifying on. He is a very articulate speaker. ”

Judge Tomie Green
Hinds County Circuit Court

“ Out of all of the Police Officers Special Training ( P.O.S.T.) training courses that I have attended, the class that Mr. Turner presented on Forensic Science investigations was hands down the best course that I have attended. His explanation of the DNA section and its application to my investigative work was especially helpful. Most of the scientific and technical procedures that occur in the crime lab sometimes seems to be a foreign language to investigators. Mr. Turner made our entire class become very comfortable with the subject matter through his entertaining presentation. Since attending his presentation, I am more confident with my investigations and I use the forensic information daily. Best instructor that I have ever had on Forensic Science and Criminalistics ”

Detective Scott Sweezey
Los Altos Police Department

“ I had the pleasure of listening to Mr. Turner as a keynote speaker at a conference luncheon being held for Forensic Scientists. I must admit, I expected it to be just another “ filler” for the conference program. From the moment that Mr. Turner started speaking about the “ State of Crime Laboratories in America Today ” , I was overwhelmed.

The speech was very emotional and it made each participant in the conference re-evaluate their important role as Crime Laboratory analysts in the investigative part of the judicial system. Mr. Turner was very entertaining and he left me with a very profound sense of obligation to my profession. His presentation would be excellent for any Forensic Science convention for information or motivational inspiration.”

Kenneth Blue
Supervisor of Fingerprint Training
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Crime Laboratory

“ Mr. Turner takes a complicated and scientific subject matter and presents it at a level that the entire group can understand and benefit from. Even though I have heard his presentation numerous times, it is still very interesting and I find new areas of understanding each time that I hear it. Outstanding speaker and trainer! ”.

Ken Fowler
P.O.S.T. Institute of Criminal Investigations Class Administrator
Fair Oaks, California

“ As an instructor, Mr. Turner is very good at getting the most out of each student that he is teaching. Because of the youthful and energetic demeanor that he has with his students, he is able to relate to them on a level that will keep them motivated about Forensic Science and interested in learning as much as possible about the subject matter to achieve their educational goals. He is very approachable and he has a very unique way of answering the most difficult questions in a very understandable manner. He is a superb teacher.”
