First on the scene
Forensic Science students participating in Crime Scene Investigation and forensic evidence photography exercises will get the opportunity to use crime scene equipment which matches that used by UK police forces – thanks to the Alumni Fund.
Principal Lecturer, David Butler said: "Digital photography is now standard practice at crime scenes and when working on forensic evidence. I would like to thank the Alumni Fund donors for providing students with access to this specialist equipment. It is important that we can match standard police practice when training our students in order to enhance their employment prospects in the sector."
Students will get to use the equipment in the Crime Scene Training Facility – a former postgraduate residential property based on Clifton campus. Assuming the role of crime scene examiners, students use the house to develop their investigation, collection and analysis techniques. The rooms replicate crime scenes, from burglaries and assaults to detailed drugs searches.
