The country's first-ever National Commission on Forensic Science will have the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Crime Lab Director amongst its appointees, Sheriff's officials stated.

Dean Gialamas was named to the commission, along with others, created by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology, Sheriff's officials said.

The commission will work to improve standards in forensic science by developing guidelines governing the intersections of forensic science and the criminal justice system. The commission will also develop policy recommendations for the Attorney General of the United States, Sheriff's officials said.

Other members of the commission include state and local forensic science service providers, research scientists, academics, members of law enforcement, prosecutors and judges. The commission is co-chaired by Deputy Attorney James Cole and Under Secretary of Commerce for Standards and Technology and MIST Director Patrick Gallagher.
