Fit for the future: how the FCN works

The FCN is new way of working that helps harness our collective forensic science efforts; transform our forensic science landscape; make our respective forensic science capabilities so much more than the sum of their individual parts; and help us deliver the first-class policing and law enforcement services.

In its broadest terms, the FCN is a community of all its members’ forensic science capabilities and expertise: still owned and managed locally but benefitting from a level of collective investment, focus, networking and support that has never been possible before.
