The FCN’s fundamental strength is its people and policing needs to be able to attract, develop and nurture the very best.
Science will therefore:
- work with the FCN community to create a workforce strategy and plan which will help FCN members to know what their forensic science workforce could look like and how they might achieve it;
- work with the FCN community, academic institutions and wider industry to create workforce recruitment and retention strategies and plans;
- work with the FCN community and the Quality team to develop a learning culture;
- work with the FCN community to leverage existing partnerships with academia and create new ones, so that academic institutions can support all FCN members in recruiting and developing their forensic science workforce.
