Forensic scientists examine crime scenes to collect, preserve, and analyse scientific evidence during the course of an investigation. In addition to their laboratory role, forensic scientists testify as expert witnesses by providing factual evidence in court, relating to both deliberate and accidental incidents. Their expertise and high standards are vital to ensure the guilty are prosecuted.
In this competition, competitors will be assessed on their understanding and knowledge of Forensic Science and its use within the United Kingdom criminal justice system. They will need to demonstrate the ability to maintain integrity and continuity throughout the examination, ensuring appropriate examination techniques and procedures are conducted at all times.
