SPECIALIST FORENSIC SERVICES
Solving the most complex cases
Forensic Access and the University of Reading have established Specialist Forensic Services (SFS) to provide investigators with easy and immediate access to an extended range of specialist scientific skills and expertise to help solve especially difficult cases. In the world of major crime investigation, niche expertise can sometimes help to unlock a case. This can involve anything from identifying tiny traces of foreign material on a murder victim, to dating ink on a document or determining from which part of the world an unidentified body may have come. SFS provides investigators with the gateway to all this expertise and the means to combine it seamlessly with other aspects of their investigations.
SFS Services Include:
A Helpline for initial advice and contact details for appropriate specialists
A single point of contact throughout the lifetime of an enquiry to facilitate communication
Regular progress reports and technical briefings to optimise use of emerging findings
A focal point to facilitate transition of forensic research into operational practice
