The Investigator is pleased to be hosting this workshop that examines contemporary issues and challenge around crime scene management and investigation.

Our workshop will provide delegates with a checklist/aid memoire of key actions for first attending officers around:

· Scene assessment and management: common mistakes and pitfalls and how to mitigate these

· Preservation of evidence and best practice around packaging

· Considerations around ISO accreditation

· Best practice around starting a crime scene log

· Best practice around DNA and other forensic opportunities

· Identifying investigative opportunities


Demonstration of a virtual crime scene

We’ll also take you through a virtual crime scene that at first examination appears to be the scene of an aggravated burglary and explore some of the key investigative and forensic opportunities that are presented at the scene.


Who should attend?

The workshop is aimed at investigators and analysts who want to develop and broaden their knowledge and understanding of contemporary issues around crime scene management and investigation and its impact on the ensuing investigation. If you are a new-to-role CSI then you will also find the workshop useful.

During her career, she has attended numerous crime scenes of volume, serious and complex and major crime and has built up a real operational expertise which she is keen to use to inform investigators and help build confidence.

Beth is now a Lecturer in Crime Scene Investigation at the University of South Wales where she is responsible for teaching contemporary skills to the next generation of CSIs and investigators.

Her unique experience combines operational expertise with academic learning and current guidance and legislation.
