Just the DEA National Forensic Laboratory Information System

In episode eight, Just Science interviews DeMia Presley from the Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA) Diversion Control Division. The National Forensic Laboratory Information System, otherwise known as NFLIS, is a DEA program that collects results of forensic analyses and other related information from local, regional, and national entities. What sets NFLIS apart from other similar programs is that participation is 100% voluntary. As such, DeMia Presley and other members of NFLIS work hard to collect information and share what they have learned with the forensic community. Listen to the discussion of the purpose of the NFLIS program, the importance of partnerships within the forensic community, and how NFLIS data is used to inform drug policy and drug enforcement initiatives.


This season is in collaboration with the Bureau of Justice Assistance Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program funding to respond to illicit substance use and misuse in order to reduce overdose deaths, promote public safety, and support access to services.


This episode of Just Science is funded by the National Institute of Justice’s Forensic Technology Center of Excellence [Award 2016-MU-BX-K110].
