Is your knowledge up to date with the latest recommendations for the collection of forensic specimens from complainants and suspects? With the recent advances in forensic science, do the facilities used for the forensic clinical examination and the equipment provided (including forensic kits) fulfil the current requirements for reducing the potential for DNA contamination?
This course will be lecture based with presentations from forensic scientists, police, and the Forensic Science Regulator, Dr Gillian Tully. There will be time for discussion of illustrative case studies.
Objectives of course
