It was the tragic, high-profile murder of a 13-year-old girl in Southampton. In this edition of Force Focus, Hampshire Constabulary shares learnings from one of its biggest cases, including how digital forensics helped recover crucial physical evidence, and why DFUs shouldn’t shy away from the cloud.

At the heart of the FCN is the desire to work together nationally to deliver high quality, specialist forensic science capabilities; to share knowledge; and to improve resilience, efficiency, quality and effectiveness.
