Lessons Learned

A crime of this magnitude was largely unprecedented in 1995. How do you investigate a crime scene that spreads across multiple city blocks? How do you ensure fair trials for the accused while protecting the innocent victims and their families? And what changes need to be made on a national level to ensure justice is served for all?

These questions and many others faced investigators, authorities and the justice system in the months and years following the Oklahoma City bombing. Learn more about each below.
