Latest News Release from Forensics Europe Expo 2013
Forensic Collaboration in the Midlands One year on
The inaugural Forensics Europe Expo Conference, Sponsored by LGC Forensics, In Collaboration with Forensic Science Society and Organised in Partnership with the Investigator Magazine, will take place on 24th– 25th April 2013 at Olympia London as the definitive source for forensics products, education, best practice, training and networking for the entire forensics sector and supply chain.
This unique conference, divided into two streams, Forensics Innovation and Digital Forensics, brings together over 45 internationally recognized speakers to debate, discuss and deliver exceptional insight and analysis to the world of forensic investigations.
Highlights include Jo Ashworth, Director of Forensic Services, East Midlands Police Collaboration Unit, who will be discussing “Forensic Collaboration in the Midlands One year on”.
“Police forces are facing considerable financial challenges and must respond by streamlining services, driving out efficiencies and capitalising on technology and innovation. The three forces in the North of the East Midlands region have responding by delivering a collaborative forensic services model; one year on there are a lot of lessons learned which can be shared with the wider community.”
Many of the speakers at this year’s conference have consulted and led large-scale investigations including a number of high profile cold-cases and have gone on to receive recognition for their work including OBE’s, accreditor for the National DNA database, Commendations from the Criminal Justice System, Crown Court and the Police, Specialist Advisor - Major Crime (one of seven in the country) and members of a Nobel Prize winning team.
One of the most eye catching sessions has been coined “Dead men talking” by the presenter Ray Fysh, Forensic Advisor, Environmental Profiling Unit at University of Reading. His presentation “Use of Radio-Nuclides, Radiogenic and Stable Isotopes in the investigation of suspicious deaths” will look at how methods using the analysis of 'light and stable isotopes' together with elemental analysis, can assist in answering questions about the identity of unknown skeletal remains.
Bart Custer of the Department of Security and Justice, The Netherlands, believes that the focus should be on “Needs, not tools”. His presentation “Best Practice in digital forensics in the Netherlands Police” will explore technology in policing in the Netherlands, offering overviews of forensic tools, police needs, best practices and effectiveness and deal with trends and challenges in computer forensics, focusing on tools like data mining, profiling and network analysis.
If you operate within the Police, Military or Intelligence Agencies, or are involved in any type of investigation and court presentation that requires the analysis of evidence, including Lawyers, Government Bodies and Agencies; through to Private organisations and the Labs themselves, the Forensics Europe Conference is the perfect forum for you.
It will review what has been learnt in the past 12 months as well as look to the future, emerging techniques, the wider supplier landscape and new legislation and how all these elements will contribute to future forensic investigations.
