How could the ethical management of health data in the medical field inform police use of DNA?

This brief article published in Frontiers in Public Health takes a look at the collective management of genetic analysis techniques and "the ethico-legal frameworks" associated with forensic science and biomedicine. Krikorian and Vailly introduce the ethics and data collection methods of genetic material by police, noting how with new techniques the ethics have changed. Then they discuss the legal and political ramifications that go along with the ethics. They conclude that questions persist "about the conditions for the existence or for the absence of political controversies that call for further sociological investigations about the framing of the issue and the social and political logic at play." Additionally, they note "the need for promoting dialogue among the various professionals using this technology in police work" as well as "with healthcare professionals."
