Forensic science integration on complex major crime scenes

06 Mar 2019

The past ten years of commercial forensic science development in the UK has seen a growing focus on analytical provision and associated ‘back office’ functions. This presentation will explore how this development has come about, and consider what effects this has had on the seamless integration of forensic science deployment on crime scenes, from the most mundane to some of the most hazardous and challenging. 

The presentation will consider how these developments contrast with the character of forensic science scene deployments in other legislatures, and how new solutions might be found to provide improved expert forensic science advice and leadership directly at the crime scene.
