The current institutional structure of police forensics gives each lab a monopoly in the analysis of the police evidence it receives.
Forensic scientists have inadequate incentives to produce reliable analyses of police evidence. We should have "competitive self regulation" for police forensics. Each jurisdiction would have several competing forensic labs. Sometimes, evidence would be divided and sent to three separate labs. Chance would determine which labs would receive evidence to analyze. Competitive self regulation improves forensics by creating incentives for error prevention, detection and correction. Surprisingly, it would also reduce the costs of running the criminal justice system.
