Abstract To achieve effective security in preventing disservice of radioactive materials is to reduce risks and responds appropriately to threats. How to prevent nuclear terrorism and radiological contamination problem is a big issue today. If Taiwan were attacked by a nuclear or radiological device, the nuclear crime scene management and political environment would be extraordinarily intense, and the pressure for the nation to respond would be a scenario to prepare before it really happens. In Taiwan, laboratories have been demonstrated the ability to analyze radiological contaminated samples and traditional forensic samples respectively. However, nuclear forensic scientists are deficient in nuclear crime scene investigation with the problem of radiological contamination. Policemen, firefighters and medical personnel should be coordinated to handle the nuclear scene investigation processes. Unfortunately, right now in Taiwan cooperating agencies have not yet devised or institutionalized a program that is optimized with respect to readiness, operational effectiveness, and sustainment although there is extensive and effective information sharing among several of the parties. In this study we strongly suggested that the cooperating agencies should adapt radiological forensic to the challenges of real emergency situations.
