At the frontier of fingermarks: Prof Simona Francese on 13 years of research into molecular fingerprinting
Traditional fingerprint analysis can help investigators match a mark left at a crime scene with a suspect’s print – but molecular fingerprinting can tell you much more. We caught up with Sheffield Hallam University’s Professor Simona Francese on how her research can be implemented by police forces.
Carolyn Lovell, FCN’s Research and Development Manager, explains more about the three projects which are being funded by the Home Office’s Science, Technology, Analysis and Research (STAR) grant.
Imaging leads and other forensic practitioners from eight UK forces will be joining members from academia, forensic service providers and international universities for a first meeting early in November.
Are you the kind of person who always asks, “why do we do things this way?” Perhaps you have ideas about how working practices could be smarter or more efficient but don’t know how to put them into practice?
FCN's Scientific Officer, Shelley Wilson, is inviting people to join a working group which will identify best practice and develop national guidance for this emerging technology
FCN has secured £110,000 in funding to conduct research into drug violence, county lines and biosensors over the next nine months. Find out how the research may help make criminal investigations more effective, identify offenders early, increase detections, improve safeguarding and reduce harm.
