Roger Sherman Greene III Memorial Award
This award was instituted in 1963 and is designed to honor individuals who have made truly outstanding contributions to the profession of criminalistics. The award will only be given to criminalists or specialists in a scientific discipline within the field of criminalistics. Any qualifying persons are eligible, not just members of CAC. The principal reason for making the award would be an outstanding contribution to the field of criminalistics. Contributions which have aided or promoted the work and development of CAC should be considered to be of importance, but qualified persons outside of this organization are eligible. Contributions will include any one or combination of the following:
- Outstanding and unusual professional work on specific investigations.
- Outstanding research and publication of the results or presentation as a formal paper before a meeting of the CAC.
- A series of papers, presented at different times covering a wide range of subject matter which shows skillful work.
- Unusual contributions to the education of criminalists.
- High level direction or development of criminalistics laboratories.
- Some other unusual and significant contributions to the improvement of the profession of criminalistics.

While no monetary or other benefit will be given in connection with the award, it should be considered by the recipient as a sign of respect and admiration for the work in the professional field of criminalistics. Awards may be presented for contributions meeting the basic requirements which have occurred at any time.
